On a sweltering summer morning in 1892, in a small American town, a prominent businessman and his wife were brutally axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden was the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial was a coast-to-coast media sensation, and her story has become legend.
Lizzie is a revenge tale for our times set to a blistering score, with a sound owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, the Runaways, and Hole.
Directed by Maeve Marsden, with an incredible creative team, Lizzie has been dragged across the ocean to Australia and injected with political depth, dark humour and a fierce queer grunge aesthetic. Relentless, uncompromising and brazenly camp, with a powerhouse cast of four and a rocking 6-piece band.
Lizzie is generously supported by Frederic Marguerre and Rodrigo Martino through the Artist Led Program
