ethnicities are encouraged to audition!
SHEENA MCKINNEY (21) The girl-next-door kind of attractive who is working
her way through college at Busters, a Hooters type of restaurant. Not book
smart, but she’s a survivor who’s a savvy negotiator.
HILDY MCKINNEY (15-18) Sheena’s younger sister. Smarter than Sheena, but
less capable in a crisis.
FRANCIES MCKINNEY (40s-50s) Sheena and Hildy’s mother who is a loud,
angry, thwarted feminist who pops pain pills and spends most of her days in her
electric wheelchair due to some kind of ambiguous chronic-fatigue malady.
MARC HUNTER (35-40) A D-list director and recovering alcoholic and sex
addict. Tells everyone he’s younger than he is.
JODY JOSHI (early 20s) An undergrad film school dude. He’s capable and
knows his stuff, but is kind of a kiss-ass who is gung ho to work on a feature
CHRISTI GARCIA (23-30) Assistant Director of the Holy Shepherd Justice
League. Very put together, as if she’s always ready to make a statement on
camera. Not to be underestimated. This actress will also play:
BRIDGET/MARCY/BETH/MADISON who are attractive young women who are killed
in various ways in the movie.
This actress will also play or voice WOMAN/CARHOP/RADIO/ANNOUNCER/NEWS ANCHOR.
This is a dynamite quick change acting challenge!
The hilarious hit of 2009's Humana Festival of New American Plays at the famed
Actors Theater of Louisville, Slasher tells the story of Sheena, a young woman
working her way through college at a Hooters-esque restaurant in Austin. A
D-list Hollywood movie director is in town to shoot Bloodbath, his low-budget
slasher flick. He loses his 'name actress,' and when he takes a meeting at the
bar where Sheena works, he ends up offering her the role of ‘The Last Girl’ to
be killed. Sheena makes the clear-eyed decision to take the money and seize her
power. News of the movie unleashes her malingering mother's rabid feminist rage,
and Mom is prepared to do anything to stop filming...even if it kills her.
Slasher is a comedy with some feminist critique and genuine menace thrown into
the mix. Rated R for Comic Gore.
“[A] self-referential perspective on the horror film genre...it is a riotously
funny excursion into the grisly but artificial world of low budget horror
films.” - Keith Waits, TheatreLouisville.org
"...Slasher elicits laughs by intentionally indulging in everything that makes
horror films atrociously unentertaining." - Broad Street Review.
