ABOUT THE SHOW

Returning to Edinburgh, following acclaimed sell-out runs of Sweeney Todd, Oliver! and Merrily We Roll Along, Peake Productions and Eltham College present the Sondheim musical Assassins. This daringly brave and dynamic production explores the nine misfit characters who have tried to assassinate presidents of the United States. A darkly humorous and powerful musical revue, spectacular in its range of musical styles, Assassins asks timely questions about the true meaning of the American dream in a country that sells its citizens hope and dreams which cannot be realised, and makes it so easy to buy a gun.
