"George Joseph Smith took their breaths away"
Three women emerge from their bathtubs, sharing two indelible bonds; they were each married to George Joseph Smith and they are all dead. Based on real-life crimes, this award-winning Canadian play will take your breath away with its poignancy and artistry.
