I’m Gonna Kill The President

“I’m Gonna Kill the President!” A Federal Offense is a guerrilla comedy written by Hieronymous BANG for the Imagination Liberation Front.  A confused college student and a paranoid radical try to overthrow the government while on the run from The Man.  The plan:  kidnap the president and demand an end to war and greed or else…

 was performed across America from 2003 to 2007.  Aside from BANG, no one in the ILF is ever identified, for security reasons.  The 2004 PS122 production was particularly charged, with the Republican Convention in town.  The ILF was the subject of a piece by Fox News: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOa6ki1NrWU

The play went on to tour the Midwest, as well as a run in Los Angeles that garnered the show an LA Weekly Award: https://www.laweekly.com/2006-05-25/stage/guerrillas-in-our-midst/
