About This Show

Why We Shot John is an earnest and controversial new piece of journalistic theatre. After years of research, playwright Walt Stepp has pieced together a plausible addition to the JFK conspiracy cannon. Told by the five conspirators themselves who are now in their eighties, they assume the 25 roles in the play including Jack Kennedy himself. Although their personal account is murky after so much time has passed, the evidence is clear. They feared the power of the Civil Rights Movement with Jack Kennedy as its Great White Messiah. The specter of the resulting Kennedy Dynasty was too much to bear.
