‘Blood Relations' keeps audience glued to Lizzie Borden’s trial

The fourth play of Lakeside Little Theatre’s 49th season is Canadian Governor General’s 1981 Award winner,  ‘Blood Relations’ by Sharon Pollock. Transporting audiences back to Fall River, Massachusetts to examine the events surrounding the trial of Lizzie Borden, it raises the perpetual question — did she or didn’t she?

LLT newcomer, accomplished director Lynn Phelan selected a strong cast of seasoned actors for this complex drama, which involves a character role swap and action that hops between 1902 and 1892 - when the Borden household achieved notoriety.

The curtain rises on an attractive and extremely well thought-out set. Designed by Rob Stupple, Phelan’s husband, the complicated construction was by Alex Pinkerton and his crew: Niels Petersen, Richard Bansbach, David White, Russell Mack, Doug Schmidt, Alan Bowers, Bryan Selesky, Rick Bleier and Rob Stupple.
