Presented by Delray Beach Playhouse, Pompano Live brings Tell Him It's Jackie to the Pompano Beach Cultural Center
The subject of Tom Dugan’s new new play Tell Him It’s Jackie is Jackie Kennedy. The narrative takes place on June 5, 1968, the date of her brother-in-law Robert’s assassination. Jackie invites us inside her life: her growing up, college, her courtship with the dashing young future President, the birth of her children, her own becoming a beloved icon, her hobnobbing with the rich and famous, her husband’s death, her spiraling into depression and substance abuse, and the subsequent death of a treasured ally. With her world crumbling around her, she decides on a course of action which will decisively change her and her children’s future.
