BWW Review: THE DROWNING GIRLS at Theatre En BlocBWW Review: THE DROWNING GIRLS at Theatre En Bloc
by Frank Benge - Oct 10, 2016

THE DROWNING GIRLS, began its life in 2008 at the Edmonton Fringe in Calgary, AB. Written by two actors and a director, the story comes from an actual murder case in England in the early 20th century. A man named George Joseph Smith courted and wed multiple women and used a different identity every time. His modus operandi was to isolate the victims from their families, getting all of their property signed over to him. He would then purchase life insurance on them and proceed to drown his victims in a bathtub. THE DROWNING GIRLS is told from the perspective of the three brides: Bessie (Christin Sawyer Davis), Alice (Sarah Danko) and Margaret (Bridget Farr). Their stories take place in three separate years but get woven together from beyond the grave. The three play not only themselves, but every other character involved in their fate, from serial murderer to family members and doctors. The resulting play is one of poetic language, lyrical rhythmic movement and a breathtaking social critique on marrying in haste. What we are treated to is how love can lead to the less-than-happily ever after. (more...)
