Lee Harvey Oswald - A Far Mean Streak of Independence Brought on by Negleck archive"If Lee Harvey Oswald did it, he could not have done it alone. If he did not, he must be the hit of the century. If he was involved and somehow double-crossed, alive today must be persons with the guilt of awful silence.". Dallas, Texas. 12.30pm. Friday, 22 November 1963. President John F. Kennedy is assassinated.??Approximately 70 minutes later, assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested. 48 hours later, Lee Harvey Oswald himself was murdered. Told through the eyes of Oswald's wife and mother, coupled with extracts from the Warren Commission's report, we follow the unsettled drifting life of Lee Harvey Oswald - his loveless marriage to his Russian wife, his challenging relationship with his mother and his pathological hatred of Kennedy's life and achievements. Oswald had the means, motive and opportunity, but did he even do it? Could a man who never did anything on his own murder a President? Based on Oswald's own diary notes and interviews (the subtitle comes from Oswald's diary in his own spelling), Lee Harvey Oswald has been performed from Tokyo to Mexico City to Prague, but never in the United States. Originally commissioned and performed at Hampstead Theatre in 1966 as The Silence of Lee Harvey Oswald as part of their 'Living Theatre' series of documentary drama, this rediscovery is the first London production in over 40 years - and the first UK production since its original premiere, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. A Finborough Theatre commission, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy - with an special additional performance on Friday, 22 November at 12.30pm at the exact time of the assassination. Performance Length: approx. 2hrs including one interval.
