Little Lion Presents...

The Little Lion Theatre Co presents their Canadian Play Reading Series Premiere: The Drowning Girls, by Beth GrahamDaniela Vlaskalic and Charlie Tomlinson 

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 deaths. 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.

Theatre Company Reviews:

The Drowning Girls is on the true story of George Joseph Smith, told through the eyes of his murdered wives.

"It's a morbidly funny and sometimes wistful trip through the minds of women who paid the ultimate price for trusting the wrong man."
