“Killer Among Us” is the latest play presented by Fedora Theatrix, a homeschool theatre company. The play is based on the true story of the 1926 Farwell, Texas serial killer George Hassell who murdered his wife and eight stepchildren. It centers around the Stateline Tribune and a young reporter who happens to connect the dots and solve the murder mystery.

“The wonderful things about this play is the historical value and the connection it has to our community even to this day,” said Gina Prather, Fedora’s director and the playwright. “There are still family members here in Parmer County who had grandparents, aunts and uncles who attended the Hassell family yard sale and who also served on the jury during the trial.”

“Killer Among Us” show times are October 27, 7:30 CST 6:30 MT and October 28 3:00 CST 2:00 MT, at Bovina Church of Christ. Admission is free and donations are welcome. A portion of all donations goes to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Bovina Christian Benevolence Fund.
