Assassins image

A surreal carnival. And a group of people who have one thing in common: they want to assassinate the President of the United States. Some succeed, some fail. But there’s a prize for them all: a place in the history books.
John Wilkes Booth. Lee Harvey Oswald. Leon Czolgosz. Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme. John Hinckley. Charles Guiteau. Sara Jane Moore. Giuseppe Zangara. Samuel Byck. Men and women whose fervour took them to the very edge.
Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Tony Award-winning biting musical comedy takes us on a daring, time-bending journey through American history.
Sondheim was a giant of musical theatre, celebrated for his inventive sophistication. His landmark works also include Company, Follies and Sweeney Todd. Weidman’s work includes two further collaborations with Sondheim, Road Show and Pacific Overtures.
