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.

This event was 8 short plays. I would highly recommend this; it was such a low price for all the hard work and good writing/performances! I was shocked by the quality of acting at such a small theater, very impressive. My favorite was The Cleaners by Lindsay Murphy, Curtis Eastwood and Carolynne Wilcox made such believable characters. I am going to keep my eye out for more of their work.

A fun evening of new ten-minute plays, in an intimate venue. The theatre is a lovely storefront black box. There were a variety of plays, some political, some comedic. All had wonderful actors! I was proud to be a small part of this exciting event.
The first weekend will kick off the festival with a bang, opening with a Night of Acts & Cabaret (Thursday, Apr 19), followed by a Night of Spoken Word (Friday, Apr 20). On Saturday (Apr 21) there is a Night of Solo Performance followed by the popular, late-night 24-Hour All-Female Play Festival within a Festival! Afternoon writing and directing workshops (Sun, Apr 22) will be offered to round out the weekend, taught by Emily Conbere and Kristina Sutherland.
