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.
