Kiss Of A Lifetime

My piece in the Kiss Of A Lifetime show is based on the William March book and 1956 film “The Bad Seed”. The focus of the film is Rhoda a murdering sociopath child. She uses the phrase ‘what would you give me for a basket of kisses?’ to ingratiate herself and get what she wants from adults. Her syrupy facade hiding the fact she is a murderer and "a cold, self-sufficient child who plays by her own rules".
