Clarksville, TN – Long before the “Twilight” saga or “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” examined the complicated relationships between mortals and monsters, there was the story of a young witch named John who fell in love with a human girl named Barbara.
Their doomed affair, set in a superstitious community in the Smokey Mountains, is the focus of Howard Richardson and William Berney’s 1945 play “Dark of the Moon.”
The play, directed by Dr. Sara Gotcher, associate professor of theatre, will bring to an end the APSU Department of Theatre and Dance’s 2013-2014 season.
“Dark of the Moon,” with its supernatural elements, is considered a folk fantasy, with much of the dialogue incorporating an Appalachian dialect. It premiered on Broadway in 1945. The play is recommended for mature audiences.
