One of the most infamous figures in American history -- Lizzie Borden -- comes to the stage in the innovative drama Blood Relations. Written by Sharon Pollock, one of Canada's premier playwrights, this psychological murder mystery delves into the facts and speculation surrounding the unsolved 1892 double murder of Andrew and Abby Borden. Their daughter Lizzie was tried and acquitted for the murders -- but not before becoming the country's first tabloid celebrity. This dreamlike play within a play takes place ten years after the trial, as Lizzie and her actress friend reenact the various roles from the night of the murders, and the truth of that night begins to come into focus.

Incredible talent: both female leads & Troy. Love watching Bo Mellinger! Music isn't memorable, and the volume on the dissonant pieces was wearing (as it surely must have been on the ears & vocal cords of the performers!) Staging & sets innovative. First half lengthy, second act sweeping. Would recommend to ardent theater goers who appreciate comfort edges being pushed.
Due to very adult situations, The Wild Party is recommended for those age 14 or older.
Sound Theatre Company presents the Seattle premiere of The Wild Party, with book, music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the 1928 epic poem by Joseph Moncure March about the excesses of the Jazz Age. A group of burlesque performers join together for a wild, erotic evening in a Manhattan apartment that will push the limits of their decadent and thrill-seeking high living.
