Gay-friendly theater brings in buckets of blood and fun

Preview performance of ‘Slasher’ at Actor’s Express tonight

It’s the Southeastern Premiere of “Slasher” at Actor’s Express, with a preview performance today at 8 p.m. and through Saturday at the gay-friendly venue. The gala opening for the play is Sunday at 5 p.m.

The synopsis of the play, as stated on the theater’s website: “When Sheena McKinney is cast in the slasher flick filming in her tiny Texas town, it might just be her big break. After all, she’s young and buxom, and her character is the last girl standing. But accepting the role unwittingly unleashes Sheena’s hostile, pill-popping mother’s feminist rage on the low-budget production in a burst of pitch-black hilarity, fake blood and real violence. You’ll never look at a power drill the same way again! This raucous comedy was an audience favorite at the 2009 Humana Festival of New American Plays.”

The play runs through June 19 and is directed by Freddie Ashley.
