On March 30, 1981, newly elected President Ronald Reagan walked out of the Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. to gunfire. Only a few feet away stood his would be-killer, a 25-year-old man obsessed with a young actress and a desire for national fame. Tying in his personal backstory, the history of American assassinations, Reaganomics, and the spirit of Taxi Driver's Travis Bickle, Hinckley is a pop culture fantasia that explores one of our greatest media obsessions and its affect on our national politics.
"Your prodigal son has left again to exercise some demons."
— John Hinckley Jr.
