Under a Red Moon

WORLD PREMIERE CO-PRODUCTION!

A spine-tingling pursuit of truth

Under a Red Moon

by Michael Slade

directed by Margarett Perry

October 18 – 27, 2012

Witness a chilling psychological thriller inspired by the true events of Britain's notorious 1949 "Acid Bath Murderer." Confessed serial killer John George Haigh awaits trial in prison as Dr. Ruth Covington arrives to determine his mental state for the court. While he welcomes their one-on-one encounter, Haigh won't give up his secrets too easily, knowing full well that it's the hangman's noose if he is found sane. This World Premiere co-production with the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center is a tightly-wound cat-and-mouse game to define the meaning of good and evil.

Running time: 90 minutes, with no intermission
