Hope Mill Theatre

LIZZIE the Musical

Rage! Sex! Betrayal! BLOODY MURDER!

Explore the life of Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe in the late summer of 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts in this true crime punk rock musical.

The musical delves into her complex psyche and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, oppression, and madness.

Lizzie, along with her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbour Alice, bring to life the infamous story supported on stage by an all-female band.

Lizzie The Musical premiered in New York in 2009 at The Living Theatre and received its London premiere in 2017 at the Greenwich Theatre with the Danish production. This new production will be the first UK-built version of the show and the first UK tour with the current cast who have recently performed at this year’s West End Live.

It is the perfect show for any fan of true crime, horror and musicals!

Lizzie is absolutely brilliant, fantastic right up there with the best of them… a rock opera, as raunchy and outrageous as any good rock opera should be.
