BLOOD RELATIONS Opens This Weekend at Carpenter Square Theatre

BLOOD RELATIONS Opens This Weekend at Carpenter Square Theatre"Did you do it, Lizzie? Did you?" It is nine years after the trial at which Lizzie was acquitted, but rumors and questions still abound. The playwright introduces a girlfriend for Lizzie, an actress from New York, and in a series of scenes, we learn how Lizzie feels betrayed by her father when Mr. Borden leaves the farm to Lizzie's stepmother instead of to her in his will. Moreover, Mr. Borden kills the birds that Lizzie has loved and taken care of for so long. These betrayals eventually lead to Lizzie's ultimate betrayal. Or did they? Told in a fresh, unique way, Pollock bases her play on historical fact mixed with speculation.
