The Bobby Kennedy Experience
The Bobby Kennedy Experience studies the life of the most famous man never to become President.
Robert Francis Kennedy, or ‘Bobby’ as he was affectionately known, was the younger brother of the most famous US President ever: John F. Kennedy (JFK).
Often referred to as the ‘runt’ of the Kennedy litter and the one least likely to succeed, Bobby would go on to prove himself to be a formidable force in America, as not only did he pick up the Kennedy project after his brother was brutally murdered, he emerged out of the political wilderness and crusaded for civil rights, climate change, alternative fuels and, finally, for the American Presidency itself. But fate had a cruel plan for Bobby…
Using movement, text, music, video, direct audience address and historical moments, The Bobby Kennedy Experience addresses the sixties biggest debates: Vietnam, Civil Rights, Gun Control and of course, Martin Luther King.
A new piece of theatre made by Russell Lucas and directed by Sarah-Louise Young.
