The Double Axe Murders
Who will survive the long, haunting night?
THE DOUBLE AXE MURDERS
By Berni Stapleton
Directed by Tamara McCarthy
Produced by Rusticate Theatre
November 14 - 23, 2019 • Studio B
On an evening colder than frostbite itself, Sarah, Payne, and Pelly wait out a winter storm. Is that a tree branch knocking on the cabin wall? And why does the howling wind sound more like a wailing Banshee?
Based on true events, this psychological thriller, steeped in Newfoundland folklore, will have you sleeping with the lights on.
Audience considerations: Some violence and mature subject matter. Recommended age: 13+
“Want to see a scary piece of Canadiana? #theDoubleAxeMurders (#TDAM) is expertly directed by Tamara McCarthy and perfectly cast starring Jessie-award winning Yoshié Bancroft. Lots of chills and spills that will keep you clinging to your companion. Based on actual events that took place in Cow Head, Newfoundland, the vernacular of this show will give you a sense of how very vast this country of ours is that it could contain such a story” -Tetsuro Shigematsu, Playwright/Actor
“Here's a great show to treat yourself with over the Halloween season... Don't miss it.”
-Laura Jaszcz, Actor/Teacher
