A punk rock musical exploring the life, mind & alleged crimes of Lizzie Borden.
1892, Fall River, Massachusetts: 32-year-old Lizzie Borden was accused of brutally murdering her father, Andrew Borden, and stepmother, Abby Borden, with an axe at their home. Lizzie was the prime suspect due to her strained relationship with her parents & conflicting statements she gave to the police during the investigation. After a highly publicized trial, she was acquitted as the jury found insufficient evidence to prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The case remains one of the most infamous unsolved mysteries in American history, and speculation about Lizzie's involvement persists to this day.
'LIZZIE' delves into Borden's complex psyche and speculates on the motivations she may have had to carry out the brutal murders. Lizzie, along with her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbour Alice, bring to life the infamous story supported on stage by an all-female band.
