Along with our friends at Pinky Swear Productions, we bring the award-winning OVER HER DEAD BODY to the illustrious, 15th annual Page to Stage Festival, featuring more than 50 D.C.-area theater companies. All weekend long, you’ll enjoy a series of FREE readings and open rehearsals of plays and musicals being developed by local, regional, and national playwrights, librettists, and composers.

OVER HER DEAD BODY won BEST MUSICAL and BEST SHOW OVERALL at last month’s Capital Fringe Festival. Here’s an excerpt of one of the stellar reviews:

“Violence against women has so permeated our consciousness, not just our current society but throughout centuries, that at best we fight and decry it, in frustration we ignore it, and at worst we… celebrate it with hundreds of years of music and entertainment. You will walk away from Over Her Dead Body feeling strangely exhilarated, because you’ve discovered a work that manages to be fun and electrifying while at the same time chillingly thought provoking.”

Running Time: 80 minutes with no intermission.

We’re bringing our dark, harmony-rich collaboration with Pinky Swear Productions to the Next Stop Theater Company in Herndon, Virginia. Tickets for this exploration of murder ballads from the female perspective are available here.
