PM&L Theatre will present Maxwell Anderson's "Bad Seed," directed by Regina Reynolds, whose previous PM&L directing credits include "Uncommon Women and Others" and "Censored on Final Approach."

"Bad Seed" tells the story of Rhoda Penmark, played by Claire Haran, a sweet, loving, smart 8-year-old girl who is doted on and admired by her parents, played by Lindsey Yates-Badtke and Patrick Blake, and her elders. But Rhoda has another face that starts to be revealed when one of her classmates mysteriously drowns at a picnic she attended, and everyone closest to her starts to feel uneasy.

 

"Bad Seed" runs at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sundays through May 20. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for students and seniors, and are available at pmltheatre.com. To reserve tickets directly through the box office, call (847) 395-3055. The box office is open from 6-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays, and 1½ hours before curtain on show dates.

PM&L Theatre is at 877 Main St., Antioch.
