About this project
Bring Lizzie Home!
"Lizzie Borden Took an Axe" is an award-winning play that premiered in Syracuse, NY in November, 2010, produced by the registered NY non-profit The Covey Theatre Company. Our goal is to bring the entire production, including set pieces, 9 actors, and 3 technical staff to Fall River, MA for the 119th anniversary of the double-murder!
The play will have 2 performances at the Nagle Auditorium in Durfee High School August 5th and 6th. The space is booked, the cast is ready to go, and since we are a non-profit, the board of directors rely on their own pocket-money to bring the production to MA. That's where you come in! Help bring Lizzie Borden home with your financial contribution!
"Lizzie Borden Took an Axe" garnered 8 Syracuse Area Live Theatre (SALT) nominations and landed 2 awards for Best Original New Play and Best Costumes. It also went on to win the Gloria Peter Playwright Competition of Aurora, NY. The play received exceptional reviews from critics and made loyal Lizzie fans glow - this show strives to be the most historically informed ever presented, satisfying even the most demanding Bordenophile!
