Thorneloe Theatre Arts and Cambrian College Theatre Arts Technical Production Program present BLOOD RELATIONS

Lizzie Borden took an axe, Gave her Mother forty whacks

When the job was nicely done, Gave her Father forty-one…

The words of the children’s skipping rhyme are still chilling to us today. Yet the horrific crime it refers to was never officially solved. Lizzie Borden was never convicted of any crime. She was the daughter of a wealthy businessman, a churchgoer, a member of a respectable family living in a sleepy little town where nothing ever happened.

Her trial captured the nations’ attention, vaulting Lizzie Borden to celebrity status. People couldn’t resist talking about her and the case. Did she? Didn’t she? She couldn’t have! Could she?

BLOOD RELATIONS is a Governor General’s Award-winning play by Calgary-based playwright Sharon Pollock. It examines the life of Lizzie Borden 10 years after the crime of which she was accused. With a set designed by Bob Ivey and production by Ken Salah and the Cambrian College Theatre Arts – Technical Production Program, BLOOD RELATIONS is directed by Thorneloe University’s visiting professor of Theatre Arts, Adam Bergquist, and features senior acting students in Thorneloe University’s Theatre Arts program.

Performances are at the Ernie Checkeris Theatre, Thorneloe University on the Laurentian campus.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
