Assassins is a multiple Tony Award winning theatrical tour-de-force that combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of America's famous culture of celebrity and the violent means some use to obtain it.

This bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny musical is perhaps one of the most brilliantly constructed, controversial and yet darkly humorous theatrical pieces ever written.

In a fairground shooting gallery a group of misfits gather. Each has a problem they need to solve and each has discovered the answer – they must shoot the President of the United States!

From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, we learn of the many varied and unusual ways that each has committed (or attempted to commit) the ultimate crime, their motivations and their desire to be recognised for their actions in a world where they are largely dismissed and ignored.

  • Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

  • Book by John Weidman

  • Directed by Miriam Rihani

  • Musical direction by Jeremy Kindl and Gianna Cheung
