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.

7/2 Sam suffering from a loss/broken marriage but might have enough to take the spoils, safe hands

adam & eve

Newlyweds Adam & Eve are moving to the countryside, leaving the city behind for good. But when Adam is suspended from work, they’re forced to question how well they really know each other.

precisionism

3 & 4 Jun

1925. New York. A city in lust with drink and drugs, sex and jazz.

When a criminal kingpin vanishes, leaving behind an empire of vice and a tantalisingly damming tale, his top lieutenants must choose – loyalty or power.

cockamamy

12 - 30 Jun

Cockamamy. Adj. Ludicrous. Nonsensical.

Alice and her granddaughter Rosie are a team. They live together, eat together, watch Countdown together. But for Alice, things have started to become ludicrous. Nonsensical. Winner of the Lustrum Award for Outstanding New Play, Cockamamy is a hilarious, achingly poignant portrayal of what it means to live with dementia.
