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.

Sunday, July 17: OVER HER DEAD BODY in Herndon, Va.

“Sing a song of murder, forget the lady’s name. Toss her in the water, try not to take the blame. Play a lilting melody on bones and flaxen hair. But they’re coming back for you so gentlemen, beware.”

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.

Saturday, July 9: OVER HER DEAD BODY Premieres

Come out to the Trinidad Theater at the Logan Fringe Arts Space *this Saturday* to see OVER HER DEAD BODY, the brand-new, harmony-heavy, darkly poignant play from Pinky Swear Productions.

Tickets available now and here until two hours before showtime; note you must have a Capital Fringe Festival Button to gain admission. Some tickets may be available at the door, but it’s best to buy now to avoid disappointment.
