Noir comedy ‘Red Herring’ opens Feb. 20 on the Armstrong Campus
Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus’ student-run theatre group, The Masquers, will present, “Red Herring,” their first black box show of the new year. The show will run Feb. 20 through Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 23 at 3 p.m. in Jenkins Hall Black Box Theatre.
“Red Herring,” a noir comedy by Michael Hollinger, is set in America in 1952 with silly plot twists that involve three love stories, a murder mystery, a nuclear espionage plot and loads of funny one-liners.
Senior theatre major, Grace Burns, is thrilled to serve as director of the production.
“Directing is something that I’ve become passionate about, and this experience has taught me so much,” she said. “I’ve learned there are many challenges that you face as a director, and the only way to tackle those challenges is through collaboration. The best part has been working with a great team of people. We have such a talented production team and cast, and it’s been so fun to work with all of them.”
