Notorious Women of History
Kate Butler explores the mysterious murder cases and psychological state of Lizzie Borden.
Over 100 years ago, Borden was accused and acquitted in the brutal ax murders of her father and stepmother in Fall River, Massachusetts. Though the events occurred in 1892, no one was ever charged for the murders and speculations about the crimes continue to linger to this day.
Kate Butler, lecturer and living history reenactor, reprises the role of Lizzie Borden in a performance disclosing little known facts of the cases and an insight into Lizzie’s psychological state.
At the end of the performance, audience members will be asked: Was Borden innocent of these crimes more than a century ago?
