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.

Quotes & Highlights
“As a lesson in history, comedy, and a remarkable woman who lived through (and told jokes about) America’s transition from Jim Crow to the Harlem Renaissance to the Stonewall riots and the Black Panther Party, it can’t be beat.” -The Stranger
“Beyond simply a collection of some of her best routines, Owens has created an inside look at this fascinating individual that unfortunately too few people remember … Howell takes on this character not with fervor but with love and a genuine respect. She not only commands the stage but owns it as she gives a one woman performance that never once felt stale.” -Broadway World
“Josephine Howell’s performance was a tour-de-force. She is a singer par excellence, and has the same amazingly expressive face as Moms, which serves any comic well.” —Drama in the Hood
