Official Press Release and Images

The Assassination of Paris Hilton

Edinburgh Festival Fringe

At the Lane Bar, Assembly Rooms 13 – 30 August, 2009

It’s gonna be hot . . .

Racked, a new London theatre collective, will present their first play, The Assassination of Paris Hilton, at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh, Scotland this summer. A site-specific 30-minute comedy set in the ladies’ room of a Hollywood nightclub, the production will take place in the Assembly Rooms ladies’ toilets.

The Assassination of Paris Hilton depicts an exploration of female relationships and the culture of celebrity worship. While three wannabes gossip and scheme, two girls plan to kill the girl they love to hate.

High-energy and fast-paced, the play provides a fun and exciting alternative to the usual theatre fare, and its site-specific, promenade presentation gives the audience a full-on, rush to the head experience.

The Assassination of Paris Hilton may not be your cup of tea, but it’s certainly your shot of vodka.
