The Drowning Girls

Written By Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlinson, and Daniela Vlaskalic

A chilling tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat, The Drowning Girls plunges you into the gripping lives of Bessie, Alice, and Margaret - three women who were married to, and murdered by, the same man. These three ghostly brides emerge from water-filled bathtubs, determined to gather evidence against their womanizing, murderous, husband by reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths. The Drowning Girls immerses you in a world brimming with vivid imagery, a captivating array of characters, an unexpected dash of humor, and poetic language that will take your breath away.
