"THE SNIPER'S NEST"
This tension-filled drama tells the story of the 1963 love affair between Lee Harvey Oswald and cancer researcher Judyth Vary Baker.
"The Sniper's Nest" is a two-character play, based on Baker's autobiography "Me & Lee: How I Came to Know, Love and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald." Their relationship would end up having world-changing historical significance, and this play looks at the infamous Oswald in an unexpected light.
When a film star, Eliot Henessey, arrives in Indonesia to adopt a baby, she attracts the interest of a journalist who questions her motivations, a bureaucrat who hopes to use her to publicize the islands and a foster father who believes that Eliots fame and personal life leave her little room for a child. Meanwhile, Ted and Carol, an infertile couple in the American suburbs, initiate a more conventional adoption process, but find that the expense, uncertainty and invasive examinations reveal rifts in their desires to have a family.
