By Daniela Vlaskalic, Beth Graham and
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.
