Slasher is a satirical twist on horror films as iconic “last-girl standing” Sheena lands a part in a low-budget flick, only to have her debut marred by a smarmy D-list director and her feminist mother, who adds new meaning to the word “cut!”

Written by Allison Moore and directed by Holly Thuma, Head of Performance at the Department of Theatre Arts.

On Novemer 7, 2010, following the 2:00 PM matinee performance, the public is invited to attend a free panel discussion in the Charity Randall Theatre that will explore some of the issues associated with Slasher—feminism, violence against women, and the sociology of female relationships. Panelists include:

            • Frayda Cohen, interim chair of Pitt’s Women’s Studies Program;

            • Veronica Fitzpatrick, a Pitt graduate student with a concentration in film studies;

            • Lisa Jackson-Schebetta, Pitt assistant professor of theater arts;

            • Christine Whalen, visiting assistant professor of sociology at Pitt.
