Spend an evening in the schizophrenic mind of John Hinckley Jr., the man who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981. This drama is presented as a fever-dream first person account of Hinckley's life and the events leading up to his assassination attempt. Written by award-winning director Ginger Dayle and directed by actor Russ Widdall (National Treasure: Book of Secrets, The Wire), the production explores how Hinckley became the face of the modern assassin and delves into Reaganomics, pop culture and previous American assassinations. It's a unique look into how one man's obsession dramatically affected American politics. Learn More
