Sun Caste Reader’s Theater Group Present:

The Bad Seed

Saturday, August 29th, 12pm – 2pm

BadseedSynopsis:  Rhoda Penmark is a 10 year old  girl beloved by all. It is only after the “accidental” drowning of a classmate that Rhoda’s mother begins to recall unfortunate events that seemed to always involve Rhoda, with tragic consequences for anyone who crosses her. Is there such a thing as true evil? Is it only a bad environment or bad influences that effect children, or can an individual have inherent tendencies that drive them toward certain evil behavior? Such questions are raised in the play, Bad Seed, a production sure to cause audiences to shudder.

NOTE: THIS IS A READER’S THEATER.  ACTORS WILL READ FROM SCRIPTS IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS PRODUCTION.
