WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

When Friday, November 22, 1963, comes to an end, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States & Police Officer, J.D. Tippit, both lie dead in Dallas. Amidst the chaos that ensues, an evasive Lee Harvey Oswald is arrested & becomes the number one suspect. It is the job of Captain William Fritz to extract a confession. As evidence mounts, defiance is Oswald's only defense. Based on the bristling & explosive actual interrogation of Lee Harvey Oswald by Dallas Chief of Homicide, Captain William J. Fritz, what unfolds in Oswald is one of the most engrossing battles ever brought to the stage, as a defiant 24 year-old, tight-lipped young man goes up against the best homicide detective the Dallas Police Department has to offer. There was no stenographer & no film or audio tapes of those interrogations, just handwritten notes by Fritz. Forty eight hours & seven minutes after the President of the United States was shot & killed, there was another shot in Dallas. That shot was for Lee Harvey Oswald.
