Set during the time that Lee Harvey Oswald was held in the custody of the Dallas police, this new play takes a sideways look at a major turning point in American history. Christian Levatino's docudrama takes place in an office within police headquarters where homicide Captain William J. Fritz is given the task of interrogating Oswald. With the nation waiting for answers, the two discuss Van Heflin, Russia, Coca-Cola, Jim Brown, the AFL, backyard photographs and that Friday afternoon in Dealy Plaza. The play won Best of Fringe Extensions at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival, as well as receiving a nomination for the Playwriting O Face Award. Learn More

I thought the plot was very original.
Playwright Buddy Farmer made his living as an actor in theatre, film, and television for over 20 years, and began writing and directing plays in 2003. His first play, Coaches: Off the Bench with Knute, Vince, and The Bear received critical acclaim in Los Angeles and on its subsequent tour. Farmer later adapted the Knute section of that play into a TV mini-series; that adaptation became the basis for the book he wrote for the new musical Knute Rockne, All American, which opened last year just outside of Chicago, garnering rave reviews and several Jeff Award nominations. His next project is a musical adaptation of his one-act play The Viagra Monologues.
