This searing psychological drama is like nothing you’ve ever seen in the Hill Country. Audience members who come prepared to be mentally challenged, shocked, and ultimately question everything they know about crime and punishment will… not be disappointed.
The Guadalupe Stage Quartet builds on its history of plumbing the most intense dramatic scripts being staged in the U.S. with this show, directed by Tony Gallucci. After the critical success of our production of Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”, and with the help, encouragement and support of Playhouse2000 Artistic Director Jeff Cunningham, we are staging our premiere show on the Cailloux stage.
Killers and lovers Nathan Leopold and Dickie Loeb are staggeringly played by T.J. Ashabranner (Leopold) and Philip Huddleston (Loeb). The skirmishing lawyers are drawn in great detail by Jeff Cunningham (Clarence Darrow) and Ken DeZarn (Prosecutor Bob Crowe). Playing myriad roles as reporters, policemen, psychiatrists, and femme fatale are Jeremy Sosa, Deanna Brandt and Blake DeWitt. Max Watson makes a cameo appearance as the doomed Bobby Franks.
The play will be presented on Friday, March 4th, and Thursday through Saturdays, March 10-12th and 24-26th, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees on March 6th, 13th and 27th at 2:00 p.m. at the Kathleen Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts in Kerrville, Texas. The play will skip the weekend of March 17-20th to allow area theater groups to attend the State Non-Profit Theatre One-Act competition in Fort Worth – one of the advancing plays features “Sinner” leads Philip Huddleston and T.J. Ashabranner.
