Archives - Assassins

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman

Directed by Keith Thompson
Musical Director Malcolm Dorling

Friday 22nd – Saturday 30th June 2001 in the Auditorium

Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking achievements in musical theatre attain a new level of audacity and accomplishment in his latest creation.

A fraternity of Presidential assassins and would-be assassins across a hundred years of history, including John Wilkes Booth, John Hinckley and Lee Harvey Oswald, examine their motives and their drive for power and celebrity in American society.

Imaginative, pleasurable and provocative.
