Oswald: The Actual Interrogation, starring Ben Williams as Lee Harvey Oswald, plays the Dallas-area Casa Mańana Theatre beginning Nov. 9. The production begins as the nation marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy.
Presented through Nov. 17, Fort Worth, TX, audiences will witness the play in the days leading up to the Nov. 22 anniversary of Kennedy's death. Penned by Dennis Richard, the play uses actual notes from Oswald's interrogation by Police Captain Will Fritz and the Warren Commission.
Set over a period of 48 hours, Oswald, press notes state, "depicts the actual interrogation of suspect number one, Lee Harvey Oswald, as this defiant 24 year old maintains his innocence even as evidence mounts against him."
Casey Hushion directs a cast that includes Williams, Ed Dixon (Les Misérables, Anything Goes) as Sheriff Fritz, Bob Hess, Bob Reed, Paul T. Taylor, Montgomery Sutton, Bill Jenkins and Brian Mathis.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
