News About I Can Kiss Like Ted Bundy at Kraine Theater
Playful Substance Announces First Show In Inaugural Season
September 21, 2018
Playful Substance is putting its mark on Halloween. After the success of October 2016's Frank, a play by Grant Harris, we have decided to make October the kick off to our season of new works. Each October we will feature a new work that probes the darker corners of the human mind. In 2018, we will present the premiere of Grant Harris' new play, I Can Kiss Like Ted Bundy, which will have a 6 show run at The Kraine (more...)
When a woman names her son, she gives him her dreams for his future. Ted’s mom named him after a handsome devil who stole her heart. What is in a name? That which we call a Ted Bundy by any other name would murder as sweet.
