Under a Red Moon, Starring Bradford Cover as Serial Killer, Begins World-Premiere Run Oct. 18
By Adam Hetrick
Ohio's Human Race Theatre Company and the Kentucky-based Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center co-present the world premiere of Michael Slade's dark drama Under a Red Moon, about real-life serial killer John George Haigh, which debuts Oct. 18 in Dayton.
Margarett Perry stages the three-actor play that runs through Oct. 27 at the Human Race, prior to a Nov. 2-18 run at the Carnegie's Covington, KY, venue.
The cast features Bradford Cover (A Thousand Clowns on Broadway) as killer John George Haigh and Dee Pelletier (Broadway's August: Osage County) as Dr. Ruth Covington. Daniel C. Britt (August: Osage County with the Human Race) portrays Ralph Gow.
According to the Human Race, "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."
Under a Red Moon has set design by Scott J. Kimmins, costume design by Ayn Wood, lighting design by John Rensel and sound design by Nathan D. Dean.
