Desperate Housewives

Your husband sucks. So do the husbands of your two best girlfriends (whom you actually don’t know all that well, and aren’t sure you even like). Yours has been busted for embezzling money from his employer and has taken up hunting, leaving bloody deer carcasses in your basement. One of your friends’ husbands is refusing sex; the other’s screwing some broad he picked up at the mall.

What’s a girl to do?

Playwright Michele Lowe has an idea, one that’s cracking up audiences in Peoria, where Algonquin Theater Company and Theater Works are co-presenting Lowe’s black comedy The Smell of the Kill, about a trio of murderous housewives who want revenge.
