This powerful drama examines the fears of parents driven to do "the right thing" when the safety of their daughter is in doubt. A mother and father who learn that the next door neighbor is a convicted child molester consider both vigilance and vigilantism before being forced into action by a pair of child advocacy crusaders. The shocking climax hits a raw nerve, leaving the audience to consider where the line between right and wrong lies. Mr. Bundy was a hit at the 1998 Humana Festival at Actors Theatre of Louisville.

REVIEWS

"One of [Martin's] most striking and arresting works...a very intoxicating piece of theatre." - Chicago Tribune, Read More

"Jane Martin has written her strongest play yet." - TheatreScope

"As she has previously with plays about abortion rights [Keely and Du] and contemporary relationships [ Jack and Jill], the pseudonymous Martin again fleshes out thorny issues with a vivid human dimension, involving an audience and preventing us from accepting easy conclusions." - Palm Beach Post


Mr. Bundy premiered at the Actors Theatre of Louisville in February 1998 under the direction of Jon Jory.
