Bad Seed
Thriller
–Theatre PG
For little Rhoda, murder is child’s play.

Little Rhoda Penmark is the evil queen of the story. On the surface, she is sweet, charming, full of old-fashioned graces, loved by her parents, and admired by all her elders. But after a boy from her class wins the penmanship medal instead of her, Rhoda’s charm turns to spite. When the boy mysteriously drowns at a picnic, Mrs. Penmark can’t shake the feeling that Rhoda was somehow involved. Would Rhoda do anything to get the medal she felt she deserved?

By Maxwell Anderson, from William March’s novel.
