Description

"I'M GONNA KI** THE PRESIDENT!" HITS L.A.!

From the desk of
THE IMAGINATION LIBERATION FRONT
Press Inquiries: 888 475 6181

The Imagination Liberation Front (ILF) presents the traveling
production of Hieronymous BANG's incendiary play "I'm Gonna Ki** the President!" A Federal Offense. The ILF is on the run, striking from underground, and more dangerous than ever. The play arrives in Los Angeles May 20 and runs through June 25.

A guerilla comedy that features a crank-call to the White House,
President! scandalized last summer's Republican Convention in New York. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Fox News, and countless
conservative bloggers railed against the production even as crowds piled in. The ILF's fun-loving radicals had to skip town fast — trouble from the Secret Service, the FBI, Homeland Security, and death threats.

The play blends the styles of the Yippies, the Muppets and Dario Fo to tell the story of a confused college student who falls for a radical prankster with a plan to overthrow
the government.

The production runs at various secret locations around Los Angeles from May 20 to June 25. America's culture of fear and persecution of liberty have necessitated certain security precautions. All performances require audience to assemble at a secret meeting place. Show times vary; tickets are $12-$15. For reservations and instructions, call 888.475.6181. AUDIENCE MUST ARRIVE AT THE MEETING PLACE AT LEAST 30 MINUTES IN ADVANCE OR RISK MISSING THE SHOW ENTIRELY — LATECOMERS WILL NOT BE SHOWN TO THE THEATER.

For the personal safety of yourself and everyone involved, please take the following precautionary measures:
- DO NOT disseminate names, locations, or other information beyond that outlined here.
- MAKE SURE you are not followed to the meeting place.
- DESTROY this document once you've memorized the information

"It has been over 24 hours since I left the theater and my nerves still haven't settled down. Now that's revolutionary." –Helen Shaw,
New York Sun

"The sign of the times isn't the play itself, uproarious as it is. It's the fact that the one might have to worry about having seen it." –Michelle Goldberg, Salon.com

"The highly inventive comedy mixes soapbox speechifying, slapstick, cheesy sight gags and equal-opportunity lampooning (paranoid conservatives and lame lefties are both shellacked) into a smart and relevant commentary." –David Cote, TimeOut NY

"This is an example of the lunatic left wing that makes mainstream leftists like me look bad." –Alan Colmes, Fox News Radio
