A Post-Mortem Reflection Staff Pick

When: Thu., April 17 2014
Derived from the haunting tales of the early 20th century “brides in the bath murders,” The Drowning Girls beautifully tells the story of the women who fell for English serial killer George Joseph Smith. The women, wooed into marrying the killer, were drowned in their bathtubs over the course of several years. Eventually caught and hanged for his misdeeds, Smith looms over the drowning women’s bodies as their last image on earth. Both touching and chilling, the play acts as a post-mortem reflection on their lives. As part of Cleveland Public Theatre’s initiative to support emerging artists, director fellow Melissa Crum is at the helm here and composer fellow Sam Fisher provides the music. The play opens at 7 tonight and runs through May 3 in CPT’s Storefront Studio. Tickets are $12 to $18. (Patrick Stoops)
