Slasher

by Allison Moore


Actors Theatre of Louisville,
2009 Humana Festival of New American Plays


Directed by Joshua Hecht

This is the "burn"makeup. In the script,"Marcy" the Dead Girl number 3, played by Christy McIntosh, is on set for the horror film "Bloodbath" and talks about the "burn makeup" she is wearing. In the course of action of the scene, the burn "flakes off" and Marcy has to exit to find the makeup artist to repair it.

The burn is attached to the blonde wig Christy is wearing in order to facilitate the quick change in and out of the scene. The burn is built from liquid latex onto a lace net.
