“The Psychology of Serial Killers is not your average show! It uncovers many of the mysteries and will answer many of the questions behind this unnerving topic. Audiences will leave the theater with a greater understanding of what makes these creatures do what they do. We will also learn something out ourselves – why are we so interested in the likes of Dahmer, Gacy, Rader and others. Right Angle Entertainment is proud to produce this tour designed to both educate and entertain” -Alison Spiriti: Producer, Right Angle Entertainment

The Psychology of Serial Killers is a touring masterclass in this very dark subject, tackling questions like: Who are these monsters and why do they commit their horrific crimes? What are the common traits that they share? Why are we fascinated with them? What is the motivation to kill and kill again? Are the victims random or calculated? Most serial killers are white males- why? Why do some women fall in love with serial killers? These questions and many others will be explored in this intense and intriguing deep dive into the psychology of these Jain humans. Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Richard Ramirez, John Wayne Gacy, and others will be analyzed and discussed. Audiences will be introduced into the warped and depraved world of The Psychology of Serial Killers!
