King's Town Players will hold open auditions for performances of Blood Relations, written by Sharon Pollock and directed by Dylan Chenier.
“Lizzie Borden took an axe...” begins the classic schoolyard rhyme that sets the stage for Sharon Pollock’s award-winning historical drama.
In 1892, Andrew and Abigail Borden were brutally murdered in their Fall River home. Their daughter Lizzie, though acquitted in court, was the only suspect ever charged. Debate as to her guilt continues to this day. Instead of a whodunit, Pollock has crafted a ‘whydunit’, examining life in the Borden household and in the world around it, to discover what might drive a spinster daughter to send her parents into the great beyond in such a memorable fashion. Most provocatively the play asks ‘Would you do it?’
