In 1915 England, George Joseph Smith was convicted of the murders, by drowning, of his three wives. In 2008 Canada, the three wives told their stories in the premiere of the play "The Drowning Girls." They tell of their wooing, their wedding, their insuring, and their drowning, all in the bathtub where they met their ends. Lady Parts Theater presents the first local performance of this unusual and poetic play this weekend at MuCCC. It's in excellent hands: the three wives are played by Erin-Kate Howard, Beth Winslow, and Marcy J. Savastano, and directed by Patricia Lewis, and the play has incidental music composed and performed live by Matthew Cochran.
Lady Parts Theater presents "The Drowning Girls" on Friday, December 4, and Saturday, December 5, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, December 6, at 2 and 8 p.m. at MuCCC, Atlantic Avenue. $18, seniors $15, students $10; $2 discount for advance ticket orders. MuCCC.org.
