LIZZIE The Musical

17th October 202410th November 2024

LIZZIE is Rage! Sex! Betrayal! BLOODY MURDER!

This True Crime Rock Musical is BACK! 

After it’s sell out run last summer at Hope Mill Theatre LIZZIE The Musical is back in this limited 3 week run!

Lizzie The Musical explores the life of Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe in the late summer of 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts. The musical delves into her complex psyche and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, oppression, and madness.

Lizzie, along with her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbour Alice, bring to life the infamous story supported on stage by an all-female band.

The perfect show for any fan of true crime, horror and of course Musicals! 

LIZZIE has swung her axe in over 60 cities, in 6 countries, in 5 languages, across 4 continents and has been honoured with dozens of awards including 8 Best Musical Awards! (and now she’s back!)
