by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, 9-13 August 2011



Come to the Fun House and see the darker side of the American Dream! In the Land of Opportunity any one can achieve their desires. Even a psychopath!

Bold, surreal and sometimes disturbingly funny, Assassins is a one-act historical musical, examining the lives of nine would-be killers, each with one shared aim, to kill the President of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman weave together the threads of American history allowing the characters from different moments in time to speak, interact and even inspire each other in the pursuit of their murderous dreams.
