Description

Buzzworks Theater Company announces the return of their riotous 1997 remake of Bad Seed, by Maxwell Anderson, a chilling horror story of an eight-year-old murderess who was born without pity. First opening on Broadway in 1954 and banned by the Legion of Decency because of homosexual references and questionable Freudian theories, Bad Seed asks the shocking question, “Could murder be an inherited trait?”
