Drowning Girls

Mar 17, 2017 - May 21, 2017

Bessie, Alice and Margaret have two things in common: they are married to George Joseph Smith, and they are dead. Surfacing from the bathtubs they were drowned in, the three breathless brides gather evidence against their womanizing, murderous husband by reliving the shocking events leading up to their demise. Reflecting on the misconceptions of love, married life, and the not so happily ever after, The Drowning Girls is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, a myriad of characters, and lyrical language.


There is no intermission during this performance.
