SMELL OF THE KILL by Michelle Lowe
June 7 – 18, 2017
Rating: 14

Take three delicious, malicious wives, add three miserable, unloving husbands and chill. That’s the recipe of Michele Lowe’s tantalizing new comedy that had Broadway audiences cheering. The Smell of the Kill revolves around Nicky, Debra and Molly who have tolerated one another during once-a-month dinners for years. While their unseen spouses play golf in the dining room, the women exchange confidences for the first time revealing that all three marriages are on the brink of disaster and all three women are facing the challenges of their lives. Nicky’s husband has been indicted for embezzlement, Molly’s husband is stalking her and Debra’s husband is leaving her for another woman. When the men mistakenly lock themselves in a basement meat locker the women are faced with a life-or-death decision should they leave the men out in the cold permanently, or let them thaw? One by one the women make their choices with more than a little help from one another.

Performances are at 8 pm. Wednesday through Saturday and 7 pm. on Sunday, March 12 and a 2pm matinee on Sunday, June 18. Tickets are $14 for adults or $12 for military/senior/students (sales tax included). There is a special opening night ticket price of $10 for all on June 7th only. Call for reservations 316-686-1282.
