I Shot Mussolini

A new play by Alice Bishop

Rome, 1926. The Honourable Violet Gibson tries to assassinate Benito Mussolini. She misses. Mussolini puts a bandage on his nose and carries on with his plans for dictatorship.

Another two inches to the right and Violet would have changed the entire sweep of world history.
