The reading will also include the talents of Charl Brown as hospice Nurse Derrick Wilson, alongside Bryce Ryness as Detective Joel Ehrlich, Joel Hatch as Detective Dan Nordvig, Graham Rowat as Daisy’s Father, Joanna Glushak as Irene Harris and Rozi Baker as Young Daisy with Brett Ryback, Brandon Ellis, Cortney Wolfson, Natalie Joy Johnson, F.

Make Me Bad, according to press notes, "follows the harrowing story of Daisy Harris in Billings Montana as she develops an exhilarating addiction to Max and murder. From small town waitress to serial recidivist, Daisy is proof that when pushed far enough, even the most unassuming people can be inherently, bad."
