Staged reading, directed by Julia Rudgers

The Mason Players present a staged reading of Hookman—an existential slasher comedy! Freshman year at college is hard, especially when there is a hook-handed serial killer on the loose. But if Lexi can discover what really happened to her high school best friend, she can finally learn what it means to grow up–and it’s not pretty.

This play contains adult content including sexual violence and racism.

Fall School of Theater performances as part of Mason Arts at Home are free. Our students are creating work under challenging circumstances and many face increased financial hardship due to COVID-19. A gift of any size in support of scholarships will help these young artists complete their education. Make a gift.
