Monday Mornings: Lizzie Borden and the 40 Whacks

Monday, November 299:30—10:30 AMSohier RoomMain Library32 Essex Street, Beverly, MA, 01915

On a scorching hot day in Fall River, back in August of 1892, a heinous crime occurred. Lizzie Borden was accused, tried, and acquitted for the vicious ax murders of her father and stepmother. This true unsolved mystery has fascinated people for over 100 years. Two people died on that day in 1892, but Lizzie continues to live on in American folklore. The performance includes a mock trial that invites the audience to participate by questioning Lizzie, deciding her guilt or innocence. Did she or didn't she? Let the audience be the judge. This program is supported by a grant from the Beverly Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Masks are REQUIRED for all.
