“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, reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths.

The Drowning Girls is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, a myriad of characters and lyrical language: thought provoking, suspenseful and gripping theatre.

Winner of the Betty Mitchell Award for Outstanding New Play.”

Performances at the Firehall Theatre, Cobourg.

Check out my conversation with Val Russell and Lucy Caldwell, the director and lead actress from Northumberland Players‘ rendition of Silent Sky!

Image may contain: text

“The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

Silent Sky is the poignant tale of a woman’s dedication to the stars and the human touch that makes life under the cast sky beautiful and timeless. It is a beautiful and insightful piece of theatre.”
