On a hot muggy day 1892 in Fall River an unknown person took an axe and gave a number of whacks to Andrew Borden and his wife Abigail

Andrew's youngest daughter Lizzie was acquitted of the double murder but acquittal did nothing to dispel suspicions. 

Did she? Or didn't she? The question still reverberates.

A psychological murder mystery, the play is based on historical fact and speculation surrounding the life of Lizzie Borden and the murders of her father and stepmother, crimes for which Borden was arrested, tried, and found not guilty.


Contains mention of murder of people and animals, and body shaming.
