Lizzie

Date: 18 Nov 2021

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, 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. Stefanie Caccamo, Ali Calder, Marissa Sarocca and Sarah Ward feature.
