The Cook County High School One Act cast and crew invite you to a public performance of their competition piece, The Red House Monster by Rachel Bublitz on Thursday January 25 at 7 PM at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. Play runtime is 35 minutes. 

The story of Hannah Gold, a young lady living on an island off the coast of Massachusetts in the late 1800s, and the night that changed her life. Filled with small town lore, haunted houses, spirits, monsters, pistols, pie, and mysteries, it is a play that will keep you guessing just what is in the Red House, and who, in fact, you should be afraid of. Inspired by the myth of Geryon and Hercules, and Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle.    *Caution: this play involves the use of a gun with one gunshot and the use of a knife and theatrical blood. 

The cast is as follows:

Hannah Gold- Maggie Getzke

Cora Gold- Aubrey Williams

Mother Gold/ Geryon- Dune Arrowsmith

Sheriff - Payton Quaife

Stage Manager- Elisa Figueroa

Director- Sue Hennessy

 For further exploration of the script, the publishers have created a lesson plan to go along with this play.*xh2jyo*_ga*ODU3NzgzMDY5LjE2OTc2NDAwMzI.*_ga_Z31MGM9Z14*MTcwNTY3OTQ5Ny4zMy4xLjE3MDU2ODAxMDcuNTMuMC4w

The Red House Monster by Rachel Bublitz is not only a haunting tale that caters to our desire to have fun being scared. This one-act play has us take a deep look at how we view others, how we are influenced by our community, and how we come to our own conclusions.- Maria McConville, Education Director, Stage Partners.
