A CONTROVERSIAL show around the confessions of Ted Bundy, one of the world’s most notorious serial killers, is to feature at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Bundy admitted murdering 30 girls and young women in America shortly before he was sent to the electric chair in 1989 in Florida.

The death row confessions of Bundy – a killer, rapist and necrophile who was also a handsome and charming man who lured his victims to secluded places – have inspired the play.

The one-man production has been written by Texas-born writer and actor Greg Wohead.

It will staged as part of the Forest Fringe programme at the Out of the Blue venue in Leith.

Shows around other famous characters from the world of showbiz and politics also form part of the Fringe programme.

They include Quentin Crisp, Richard Burton, Bette Davis, Enoch Powell and Dylan 
Thomas.

Former prime minister Gordon Brown will be the focus of two separate productions – entitled Confessions of Gordon Brown and Gordon.

Bette Davis Ain’t For Sissies looks at the actress’ famous rivalry with Gone With The Wind star Vivien Leigh, while The Assembly Hall on The Mound will host a play examining Welsh legend Burton’s rise to become one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
