This original play is the true story of the murders of Margaret Lloyd, Alice Smith and Beatrice Munday.

In the early 1900’s George Smith quietly became a serial bigamist, marrying eight wealthy women. His tendency was to rob each of them and to...

Nathan Pylypuk portrays William Betts in Living in the Spaces.   Globe:  Who is your favourite composer? Nathan:  Because the music I listen to is so dependent on my mood, it's difficult to name just one but if I have to pick a favourite composer of all time I'd have to say Tchaikovsky.  The first CD I ever bought, at the age of ten, was a three-disc set of Tchaikovsky recordings.  I'd like to think it made up for the New Kids on the Block cassette tape I requested for my eighth...
