Nov 4th – 12 2023


IN RESIDENCE: October 31 – November 13, 2023

In an attempt to repair their fraught relationship, twenty-four-year-old ANNIE takes her mother, MIDGE, on a cross country road-trip to see Ted Bundy’s Volkswagen. Will their shared love for true crime bring them together, or are the forces of guilt, shame, and hate stronger than the force of love? Ted Bundy’s Volkswagen is a raucous exploration of family, violence, and that little worm called cruelty that wiggles around in each and every one of us.
