Covington goes Under the Red Moon
November 14, 2012 by James
Under the Red Moon is being presented by the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center and is set in 1949 with Britain’s notorious Acid Bath Killer, John George Haigh. This is a psychological thriller that was inspired by true events and the confessions of this chilling serial killer.
Six years later, and six-to-nine murders later, John George Haigh is arrested and confesses to the killings that have taken place in Britain. Now the only question that remains is whether or not he is sane. If he is found sane, he will be hanged, but if he is found insane, he will be locked away in psychiatric ward for the remainder of his life. A decision has to be made, so a female psychiatrist arrives to make the determination, only to be toyed with by the killer until the audience will wonder who is examining whom. This play is sure to send chills down the audiences’ spine as it unfolds.
Poster printing, brochure printing, and flyer printing were most likely used to promote this play to the people of this community and surrounding communities. Tickets range in price from $16 to $23, depending on age. Under the Red Moon will be performed Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays from now until Sunday, November 18. Thursday and Saturday performances start at 7:30 pm and Sunday shows take place at 3:00 pm at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center located at 1028 Scott Blvd. in Covington, Kentucky, a short drive from Florence. To reserve tickets, please visit the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center website, or call the box office at 859-491-2030.
