Grier's "Bad Seed" is a Good Apple!

Audiences enjoyed Grier School's production of The Bad Seed, a chilling story of a seemingly perfect little girl in a small Southern town. The acclaimed play was written in 1954 by Maxwell Anderson, based on a novel by William March and was adapted into an Academy Award-nominated film.
In the play, the character Rhoda Penmark, appears to be a sweet and charming child, but her mother’s uneasiness about her daughter grows after a classmate’s mysterious death. Disturbed by events in the both present and new-found knowledge about her past, Rhoda’s mother Christine takes drastic measures, hoping to stave off future evil-doing.

At Grier, The Bad Seed was directed by drama teacher Mrs. Kim Silverman and performed by Grier students on Thursday, November 16th and Friday, November 17th.
