The old South lives on at the MacGregor Plantation—in the breeze, in the cotton fields...and in the crack of the whip. It’s an antebellum fever-dream, where fear and desire entwine in the looming shadow of the Master’s House. Jim trembles as Kaneisha handles melons in the cottage, Alana perspires in time with the plucking of Phillip’s fiddle in the boudoir, while Dustin cowers at the heel of Gary’s big, black boot in the barn. Nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is as it seems.

A darkly comic musical exploring the minds of Presidential assassins and attemptors, among them John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinkley, and the lesser known Charles Guiteau, Samuel Byck and Squeaky Fromme. Some had very specific motivations, others' intentions were muddled. All changed the course of U.S. history, and, this musical suggests, added to our unsettling national obsession with celebrity.
