‘The smash-hit musical’

Revenge, betrayal, sex, murder! What really happened in the house of Borden?

On a sweltering summer in 1892, a wealthy businessman and his wife were found murdered in their own home. Their daughter, Lizzie Borden, was the prime suspect.

Lizzie is the punk-rock musical reimagining of the gripping true-crime case of Lizzie Borden, exploring the heady and heated events leading up to the infamous trial that became a media sensation.

Brought to life by a powerhouse cast of four women and a searing live band, Lizzie is a suspenseful, queer, and rebellious new musical laced with political depth and a mischievous sense of humour that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat.

WINNER of 8 ‘Best Musical’ Awards.
