The 1980s. America is gripped by Satanic Panic.

Secret rituals and devilish practices are taking place across the country, destroying the minds and lives of the American youth. But the most diabolically terrifying threat of all is Dungeons & Dragons: for some just an innocent role-playing game, but viewed by many as a gateway to corruption, violence, and SATAN. Thankfully, the forces of good are fighting back…

You are invited to attend this inaugural meeting of B.A.D.D. (Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons) to learn how best to protect your children from the clutches of the occult.

Written and performed by Carrie Marx, BADD is a darkly comic presentation on the multitude of Satanic threats hidden in seemingly innocuous everyday objects and media. It is part theatrical lecture; part participatory brainstorming session.

Inspired by true events.

Produced by Hermetic Arts – a new company set up to create genre work in theatre, film, and music. Current projects include theatrical explorations into the Satanic Panic, a music video for singer/songwriter Donald Newholm, a séance musical, and the mini-rock opera: The Exorcism of Danny Fontaine. We love the Dark Arts, Horror, Cryptozoology, Mischief, and Odd Stuff.

Founder of the musical comedy group The Segue Sisters in 2009, Carrie works extensively as an actor and musician in theatre and on the comedy and cabaret circuit.
