This is a nuanced, quietly captivating production and its whole strength rests on the capable shoulders of Ellen Barry.

Ellen Barry's Lizzie is at once a sympathetic figure and a cold, unhinged woman who does seem capable of murder—and who reminds us of what we in turn might be capable of...Mitch Giannunzio’s script

“Ellen Barry...gives the audience...[a] riveting and…haunting portrayal of Borden in a performance...

...that could easily be entitled ‘Law and Order: Fall River.’”
