THE DROWNING GIRLS presented The Clifton Players through Nov. 11. I attended the opening night performance.

Clifton Players open their new space, the Liberty Exhibition Hall, with a haunting production of THE DROWNING GIRLS.

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 by reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths. 

Local favorites Mindy Heithaus, Eileen Earnest, and Carol Brammer excel in the production; both as an ensemble and in their strongest individual performances to date.

Director Bridget Leak continues to impress with her inventive staging and clear vision for the engaging script.

My rating: 5 out of 5.
