Bold, original, surreal, disturbing, thought-provoking and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.
This most American of musicals lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical show that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and in an intense final scene inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
Scott Farrow, Jeff Keogh, Anna Kidd, Craig Irons, Julia Hern, Hannah Powell, Scott Burns, Jeremy Pyefinch, David Gilkes, Jared Goldsmith, Amy Read, Beck Andrews, Josh Scott, Kallista Adkins, Matt Edmunds.
