        You All Know Me, I'm Jack Ruby!

You All Know Me, I'm Jack Ruby!

Jack Ruby certainly killed Lee Harvey Oswald - twenty million witnesses watched as he gunned him down live on national television. The world was grieving for John Kennedy and the mysterious young man accused of his assassination had just been silenced by a local nightclub owner. None of it made any sense. For fifty years, commentators have attempted to solve the riddle and in piecing together the jigsaw puzzle of those events many have required Jack Ruby to be "the Mafia's man in Dallas" - a blunt underworld weapon used to prevent Oswald from telling the truth. That piece would fit the puzzle. But does Jack Ruby fit the piece? This one-man drama is set in Ruby's solitary confinement cell and onstage in his Burlesque nightclub and follows a timeline from Kennedy's assassination in Dealey Plaza to Lyndon Johnson's re-election as president one year later. In it Jack Ruby reveals what drove him to commit homicide. Underpinning the piece are Ruby's own words from his testimony to the Warren Commission, his responses to an epic polygraph test and messages smuggled out of the Dallas County Jail.
