Description

At the turn of the 20th century, the president of the United States is shot by an anarchist. Is the crime a protest against America's imperial ambitions - or a cry for attention by an angry young man? Provocative, edgy, and compelling, this first play by the author of "Fast Food Nation" and "Reefer Madness" is about patriotism, power, the allure of violence. Morally complex and original, "Americans" explores the origins of the American empire and the imprint it now leaves on the world.
