Human Race Theatre Company
June 13-30
Loft Theatre [Dayton]

Directed by Jamie Cordes
Music direction by Jay Brunner
Choreographed by Katie Johannigman

Cast: Natalie Bird as Emma, Deanna Giulietti as Lizzie, Leslie Goddard as Bridget, Rachel Mary Green as Understudy & Michaella Waickman as Alice

“Lizzie Borden took an ax…” And we know what happened next. Or, do we? It’s a powerhouse rock-show retelling of the sensational—and bloody—double murder that shocked New England in the summer of 1892, as told through the fierce performances of four stellar actresses. What starts as the abuse and despair of a troubled woman results in a shocking act of revenge when she takes a hatchet to her oppressive father and stepmother. Charged with the killing of her parents, Lizzie becomes a media sensation even as the trial takes its toll on the relationships with those dearest to her. This show contains references to abuse, murder and sexual situations.

Meet Bette Davis backstage at The Night of the Iguana. Go one one of Tennessee’s many adventures with Truman Capote.
