News   Setlock, Rodenburg, Strus, Moeller Star in Humana World Premiere Slasher, Opening March 8
 
Allison Moore's Slasher, one of six full productions in the Humana Festival of New American Plays, opens March 8 at the Bingham Theatre at Actors Theatre of Louisville.

Josh Hecht directs the comedy, which began previews March 6 and continues to April 5.

According to ATL, "When she's cast as the 'last girl' in a low-budget slasher flick, Sheena thinks it's the big break she's been waiting for. But news of the movie unleashes her malingering mother's thwarted feminist rage, and Mom is prepared to do anything to stop filming…even if it kills her."

Moore's Slasher is billed as "a savvy comedy-thriller that takes some unexpected twists and turns…"

The cast includes Lusia Strus, Christy McIntosh, Mark Setlock, Nicole Rodenburg as Sheena, Katharine Moeller and Lucas Papaelias.

The creative team includes scenic designer Paul Owen, costume designer Jennifer Caprio, lighting designer Russell Champa, sound designer Matt Callahan and properties designer Doc Manning. For more information call (502) 584-1205 or (800) 4-ATL-TIX or visit www.ActorsTheatre.org.
