About this show

What happened to Lizzie Borden after she was acquitted of the murders she was charged with? Nick Pelino, Jr.'s play Lizbeth of Maplecroft follows the infamous Borden's life after she and her sister moved to the fashionable side of their Fall River community. Lizbeth (as she re-named herself) becomes involved with actress Nance O'Neil and welcomes all of O'Neil's theater associates to her home in this sleepy cotton mill town -- an action that proves to be far more outrageous to the sensitive society of Fall River than the belief they were living among an ax murderer!
