This Tuesday, JULY 22nd, we will be reading the 1954 play THE BAD SEED by Maxwell Anderson.

The story of the play focuses on the seemingly perfect little girl Rhoda Penmark, who is able to charm her way into getting just about anything she wants. Anything, that is, except a highly coveted penmanship medal that her teacher has awarded to Claude Daigle, one of Rhoda’s classmates. During a school outing near the shore, Claude goes missing and it is soon discovered that Claude has drowned near a pier. Rhoda’s mother, Christine, begins to suspect that Rhoda had something to do with the boy’s death when she finds Claude’s penmanship medal hidden in Rhoda’s room. Gradually Christine comes to believe that Rhoda was behind other incidents surrounding the family which also ended with someone dying before their time.
