About this show

"Lizzie Borden took an axe..." begins the classic school yard rhyme that sets the stage for Pollock's award-winning historical drama. In 1892, Andrew and Abigail Borden were brutally murdered in their Fall River home. Their daughter Lizzie, though acquitted in court, remains the only suspect ever charged in connection with the killings. Debate as to her guilt continues to this day. Initially produced in 1980, Blood Relations takes a look into the mind of New England's most celebrated axe murderess, breathing new life into one of the most infamous crimes of the nineteenth century.
