Andrew and Abby Borden are found dead in Fall River, Massachusetts on August 4th, 1892.
Their daughter Lizzie is the main suspect.
Tried but acquitted of the crime, the story goes that she wielded the axe that killed them.
Overnight, she became America’s original “mad, bad and dangerous to know” icon of tabloid and rumour.

Returning from a tour in the US, Bury the Hatchet is true crime podcast meets bluegrass musical; a fun feminist reimagining of the Lizzie Borden story.

Out Of The Forest Theatre is an ensemble-based company that attempts to redefine traditional narrative structure with an eye to blending music, movement and storytelling.
Cast: Sasha Wilson, Joseph Prowen, David Leopold.
Produced by Claire Gilbert and Joseph Cullen for Out Of The Forest Theatre.

call me fury

“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”

CALL ME FURY is about The Salem Witch Trials. Sort of. A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today – set to live folk music.
