London Levine Pictures production company has just signed o to produce an original play, written by Air Force Veteran and recent NYFA graduate Michael Levine called “Possession: An American Serial Killer.” The show will be directed by horror expert and Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre’s own Denise Devin. “Possession” is a reimagining of Ted Bundy’s time while working at the Suicide Crisis Center in the early 70s that will run eight shows starting October 14th at the infamous, Z.J.U. (Zombie Joe’s Underground) Theatre in North Hollywood, California.
On the reason to produce this play, Chris Levine, co-owner of London Levine Pictures who will also be portraying Ted Bundy says, “The talk of serial killers lately and more specifically Ted Bundy; it just seemed like the perfect time to be a part of a play like this one. A well-written grounded look at Ted before he became a demon. Signing with ZJU Theater was the easiest decision for us, they have been doing horror theater for years and have a huge following of loyal fans who will feel right at home with our disturbing piece.”
The play follows Ted Bundy while working at the Suicide Call Center in 1971, which was true but from there they take it a little further where a suicidal young woman, Lonnie portrayed by Anza Seller, calls in and pleads with Ted to take away her pain. This struggle is only intensified by Lonnie’s parents, played by Berna Roberts and David O’Hara, as their disregard for their daughter’s health leaves her no choice but to trust Ted. Watch the MONSTER emerge in Ted in a final act that will leave audiences cringing.
A portion of proceeds from “Possession” will go towards the Veteran Affairs which provides health care services and benefits programs to former military personnel and their dependents. Tickets are available for $15 via Eventbrite or at the door for $20.
