BADD (Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons) written and performed by Carrie Marx
You are invited to attend this inaugural meeting of B.A.D.D. to learn how best to protect your children from the clutches of the occult.
BADD is a one-woman show, set during the US Satanic Panic of the 1980s (the decade that brought you Stephen King’s ‘IT’ and laid the foundations for The Duffer Brothers’ ‘Stranger Things’). Inspired by true events, it’s a darkly comic (and occasionally interactive) presentation on the diabolical influence of fantasy adventure Role Playing Games, as well as the multitude of Satanic threats hidden in seemingly innocuous everyday objects and media.
Premiering at VAULT Festival 2017 (London), where the show was Highly Commended by the VAULT judging panel, BADD went on to a successful run on the Brighton Fringe in May.
Carrie Marx is the co-writer of happy (***** Fringe Guru, ***** Grumpy Gay Critic), in which she also performed at this year’s VAULT Festival. Founder of the musical comedy group The Segue Sisters in 2009, Carrie wrote The Segue Sisters in Jailbirds, which she also co-produced at the Edinburgh Fringe 2011 with AlleyKat Productions. In 2016 she performed in the horror revival Darktales by Tim Arthur, at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The show is directed by Chris Lincé, and produced by Hermetic Arts – a new company set up to create genre work in theatre, film, and music, based on a love of the Dark Arts, Horror, Cryptozoology, Mischief, and Odd Stuff.
