Written by J.E.Ballantyne, Jr., the concept of the play is that Lee Harvey Oswald survives the shooting by Jack Ruby and goes on trial in a Dallas Federal courtroom for the assassination of President Kennedy. A cast of 50 characters brings this drama to vivid life onstage. But the most compelling part of the evening is that the audience acts as the jury and renders the final verdict on whether they think Oswald is guilty or innocent of the crime. Four possible endings are written into the script depending upon what the audience each night decides.
