The Magnetic Theatre presents Bloodbath: Victoria’s Secret

October 15 @ 7:30 pm - October 30 @ 9:30 pm


The Magnetic Theatre presents Bloodbath: Victoria’s Secret

Just in time for Halloween, The Magnetic Theatre launches a not-to-be-missed spectacle of suspense, terror, and surprise with Bloodbath: Victoria’s Secret by Jamieson Ridenhour.

As “Tori Piper,” Victoria Leigh was once the darling of mid-to-late eighties low-budget horror, the go-to final girl of a dozen or so B-level slashers. Then she filmed the cult classic Sorority Bloodbath, a cinema verité horror film plagued by rumors of sinister occurrences on-set. Shortly thereafter, she vanished, fueling fan conspiracy theories galore.

In 1999, Victoria Leigh is planning a quiet New Year’s Eve dinner with her girlfriend, but things aren’t working out. People keep showing up at the apartment, and some of them have sinister intentions. Add in a crazed young wanna-be agent and a former co-star with motivations of her own, and the terror mounts quickly for the retired scream queen. But as the night lengthens and the body count grows, more questions arise. Who is really the hunter and who the prey? What really happened on the set of Sorority Bloodbath all those years ago? To what lengths will a final girl go to survive?

Bloodbath: Victoria’s Secret is a new play written and directed by Jamieson Ridenhour, creator of the podcast “Palimpsest” and playwright of Grave Lullaby and Terry Tempest: The Final Interview.

Performances run October 15-30, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 4pm.

Limited seating is available, with COVID precautions in place. For more information about The Magnetic Theatre, upcoming events, and how to purchase tickets or become a member of Asheville’s only theatre focused on new works, visit
