November 22, 1963 is one of the most infamous days in history. As President Kennedy's motorcade heads down the streets of Dallas, Texas, a shot rings out. Days later his accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, is led through the basement of the Dallas Police headquarters only to meet his doom. The nation mourns for the loss of a great leader, and for a truth that can never be spoken. Told through the eyes of his now elderly widowed wife, Oswald explores two possible versions of the accused assassin's journey simultaneously. On one side of our story we follow a troubled youth caught up in an impossible situation, which ultimately leads to the conspiracy theories many believe to this day. On the other, we watch a cold-blooded killer driven mad by his unrelenting need to be remembered.
Jane Cardona (Head Over Heels, To Kill A Mockingbird) music directs and leads the band on keyboard, with Eric Stockton and Freddy Hall on guitar, Jeff Allen on bass, and Kevin Garcia on drums.
Written by Tony LePage (Come From Away, Rock of Ages) and Josh Sassanella (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, Rock of Ages), Oswald was first staged at Dallas' The Firehouse Theatre. Oswald is directed by Randi Kleiner (Zombie Prom, God Loves My People Best), features music supervision by Kimberly Grigsby (To Kill a Mockingbird, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark), with Ally Beans and Enrique Brown producing. 5th Estate Entertainment is general manager.
