A century ago, The Brides of Bath were murdered, but not silenced. Join us for a true crime story...told by the victims.

Freshwater Theatre proudly presents The Drowning Girls by Beth Graham, Daniela Vlaskalic, and Charlie Tomlinson, Directed by Ben Layne.

Bessie, Alice and Margaret have a few 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.
