Magnus Theatre Invites Audiences to a Virtual Session of Meet the Playwright

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~  November 26, 2020 (LSN)  Magnus Theatre will be hosting a live stream of a virtual chat with the playwrights of The Drowning Girls, following the Saturday matinee performance of the show. Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlinson, and Daniela Vlaskalic are a trio of Canadians who collaborated on this haunting tale back in the 1990s. 

Simultaneously macabre, playful, and unabashedly witty, The Drowning Girls is a ghost story about three brides who share two things in common: they all married the same man, and they are all dead. This gripping play is based on the true story of George Joseph Smith, a charming conman and bigamist who preyed upon unmarried women in the early 1900s. He’d woo them, swindle their money, take out life insurance policies on them, and murder them soon after the nuptials. The infamous case became known in the popular British press at the time as the ‘Brides in the Bath Murders’.  

Patrons are invited to stay in the auditorium following the performance to join the conversation and ask questions. Those at home will be able watch a live online stream starting at 3:30 pm on Saturday, November 28th and submit their own questions in real-time via Magnus Theatre’s Facebook page at Theatregoers and others interested can also submit their questions to ahead of the event.  

Meet the Playwright is offered free of charge for the general public. The event is administered through PlayConnect and made possible by the Playwrights Guild of Canada and The Canada Council for the Arts.  

Meet the Playwrights

The Drowning Girls runs at Magnus Theatre until the evening of November 28th. Tickets are available online at or by phoning the Box Office at 807.345.5552. Public gathering restrictions mean that audiences are capped at 50 people per performance and masks are required inside at all times.
