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
Quotes & Highlights
- “This one-woman show about an American girl who falls in love with Brighton in her year out is a revelation, thanks to an extraordinary performance from Erin Parks." --Brighton Festival Review
- "...brilliant piece of writing and performance. Go and see it. I mean, go and see it. Six stars if I could." --FringeReview
The US Premiere of this moving and funny one-woman show about a Texan girl’s unconventional adventures in a British seaside town. This hit coming-of-age story has already wowed British audiences. Part travelog, part love-letter to a city, the show explores the idea that sometimes you have to pretend to be someone else to find out who you really are.
Erin Parks-Winner Best Female Performer Brighton Festival said:
“I’m really excited to finally be doing this show in America and the first Hollywood Fringe! Perfect timing! It was originally written for me to do here but I ended up staying in the UK for five more years. Anyone who has ever moved to a strange city, not knowing anyone will relate to the highs and lows of my adventure.”
Beautifully written and simply staged by Guy Picot, this show is for theatre lovers and novices alike.
