A Comedy by Michele Lowe

Presented by MAS Community Theatre

Directed by James Rayfield

2018-The-Smell-of-the-Kill---Drink-to-that---square-webTake 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.

“…nice, mean fun…a deft little anti-love story…light-hearted, cold-hearted…” (Newsday)

“[a] devilish, wicked, ultimately touching black comedy.” (The Berkshire Eagle)

“Effective black comedies are rare these days and this is a rich torte…it has a superb crustiness which supplies an evening of nearly continuous laughter.” (The Advocate)

“…the play boasts lines and scenes that have the audience laughing as uproariously as The Producers.” (Variety)

The Smell of the Kill is being produced through a special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing.
