John Weidman and Stephen Sondheim's Assassins, the final production of the Unicorn's 2003 season, are John Wilkes Booth, Leon Czolgosz, Guiseppe Zangara, John Hinkley, Charles Guiteau, Sara Jane Moor, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme and Lee Harvey Oswald, who all had two things in common - they were malcontents and they all thought killing the President of the United States would make things better. Assassins is a strange hybrid. Part fact, part fiction, a musical as well as a searing, black comedy, the production explores the psyches of some of America's most heinous criminals and the culture that spawned them.
There are added matinees on Saturdays August 16 & 23 at 2pm.
There is a Talk-Back performance on Monday, August 11.
