ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 23, 2018
The author has devoted a lot of research into the root causes of the attempted assassination of President Reagan in March of 1981. It was very creative the way that events were portrayed in three separate sub-sections: On the right side the dialog among government officials; on the left side the banter between mother & daughter in the restaurant; and in between the appearance of an obviously nervous John Hinckley.... full review

Fast-paced, high energy fun that allowed a few moments for the audience to catch it's breath. Incredible cast, every one of them deserves high marks. Great story, well-woven into the fabric of the known history of the time. ... full review

This play presents a plausible explanation, and does it in such a manner that you will leave the theatre contemplating that question. Playwright Benjamin Schwartz and director Matt Richey give us a golden opportunity to witness the possible behind the scenes dealings in this matter. ... full review

Wow! I enjoyed every second of American Conspiracy. The diner scenes were fantastic, and the emotional tension between mother and daughter felt as if I was witnessing a typical family drama. The interaction between the son battling to save the oil company and the self-interested banker resulted in a thought-provoking twist, providing an imaginative peek behind the scenes of politics and power. The story and dialogue were riveting. Great job to this outstanding fringe team, including the director and especially the writer! I hope to see this show move to more SoCal stages. ... full review

The piece is an excellent play in progress. Ben Schwartz is an important playwright to pay attention to. I hope he develops American Conspiracy into a full length to explore the relationships and the motivations.... full review
