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.
