The Westlake High Theatre (WHT) Department announces its 2018-2019 opening season with THE LIZZIE BORDEN OF FALL RIVER .
Directed by Kerry A. Onxley The Lizzie Borden case is without parallel in the criminal history of America, and it divided public opinion as no murder trial had ever done. Did the strong-willed, intelligent Lizzie dispatch her father and stepmother with an ax one fateful August morning, or was she the innocent victim of circumstance?
The setting of the play is the Borden residence in Fall River, Massachusetts. All gripped by suspense as clues fall in and out of place. Why was the evidence that would help prove Lizzie innocent withheld? Who is lying and who is telling the truth? Why do so many rush to her defense and so many others want her punished?
This performance is held at Westlake High Theatre at 1000 Garden Drive on Thursday, November 15 at 7:00PM. School Performance is at 10:00AM.
Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at 337-217-4950.
