by Maxwell Anderson
presented by OutFox Productions
Christine Penmark has it all. A loving husband. A beautiful home. The perfect daughter.
But when tragedy strikes on Rhoda’s school trip, and a classmate is discovered drowned, Christine is forced to confront the growing number of “accidents” that happen when her daughter is around. Obedient, charming and intelligent beyond her years, Rhoda is a parent’s dream child. But what if underneath the sweet exterior beats the heart of a cold-blooded sociopath?
Regarded as one of Broadway’s outstanding and chilling hits, OutFox Productions present Pulitzer Prize winner Maxwell Anderson’s play, adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by William March.
The Bad Seed is revived by OutFox, whose previous work at the Jack includes Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening, Patrick Hamilton’s Rope and Sarah Daniel’s The Gut Girls. The Bad Seed is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.
