Lizzie Borden took an ax... Feb. 2

The Groton Woman's Club and the GPL Endowment Fund invite the public to attend a lively, "edutainment" theatre production of "Lizzie Borden and the 40 Whacks!" on Sunday, Feb. 2, at 2 p.m. in Sibley Hall at the Groton Public Library.

On a scorching hot day in Fall River, back in August of 1892, a heinous crime occurred. Spinster Lizzie Borden was accused, tried and acquitted on the vicious ax murders of her father and stepmother. This true unsolved mystery has fascinated people for over 100 years. Two people died on that day in 1892, but Lizzie continues to live on in American folklore.

The performance includes a mock trial that invites the audience to participate by questioning Lizzie, and voting on her guilt or innocence.

The play features Lynne Moulton and Joseph Zamparelli in multiple roles depicting Lizzie's story and educating audience members so that they may be informed "jurists." Did she or didn't she? Let the audience be the judge.
