GREEN BAY – University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Theatre Studio and Alternate Theatre present “The Assassin’s Anthology,” written and directed by Selena Deer, December 6-8, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Jean Weidner Theatre, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.
Nine assassins live together on an estate, each with their own specialty. Hangman, their leader and #1 assassin, has a secret he has yet to reveal to the others, until the truth is discovered by the newest addition to the team, Candle. Candle’s creative writing and impulsiveness begins to threaten the very rules that Hangman has so direly enforced. Reality begets fantasy when one of the assassins is found dead, and discovered evidence suggests that the infamous mythical assassin, the Executioner, is behind the assassination.
