Assassins is Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s hilarious and horrifying theatrical debate about the motivations driving the real-life characters who’ve attempted to assassinate the President of the United States.

In an era of unprecedented political rancour and attention-seeking violence, this audacious show strikes searing new chords though a dynamic collage of musical styles, from bluegrass to brass-band to pop. Assassins looks into the dark heart of the American Dream, focusing its sights on the nation’s dysfunctional relationship with fame, guns and those who try to achieve one with the other.

Please note: This production contains violence, extreme language, and mature themes. It is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 14.

Running Time: Approx 1 hour 45 (no interval).
