About This Show

Occasional Twin Citizen Michael Martin returns home to perform his latest (and probably last) one-man show about celebrity obsession: Hinckley on Foster: The Hearing. In this one, the guy who earlier went onstage to explore the meaning of Justine Bateman and Quentin Tarantino impersonates would-be Reagan assassin John W. Hinckley, Jr, the schizophrenic who attempted to kill the President in 1981 to prove his love for Jodie Foster. Martin’s carefully researched imaging of Hinckley has him testifying to unseen doctors (the audience) at a sanity hearing, trying to prove that after 20 years he’s fit to re-enter society.
