    “All you have to do is squeeze your little finger, you can change the world”. Set in a fairground shooting gallery, 'Assassins' follows nine historical figures as they attempt to assassinate the President of the United States. The tone of the show is as varied as the characters themselves, contrasting moments of humour with dark and thought-provoking undertones. Prepare to have your preconceptions challenged in a show which attempts to understand the assassins’ motives, bringing together a range of people with little in common except that one harrowing act in pursuit of their version of the American Dream.
