The Drowning Girls
Bessie, Alice, and Margaret have two things in common: they were all married to George Joseph Smith, and they are all dead.
Surfacing from the bathtubs they were drowned in, the brides gather evidence against their murderous husband by reliving the shocking events leading to their horrific murders.
The Drowning Girls is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, myriad characters, and lyrical language. Chilling, haunting, and ultimately unforgettable.
Our production is the Pacific Northwest premiere of one of Canada's most celebrated recent works, and is adapted from transcripts from the trial of George Joseph Smith, the "Brides in the Bath" murderer in England at the beginning of the 20th century.
