“Lizzie Borden and the 40 Whacks”
by Fran Baron, presented by The Delvena Theatre Company
On a scorching hot day in Fall River, back in August of 1892, a heinous crime occurred. Spinster Lizzie Borden was accused, tried, and acquitted for the vicious ax murders of her father and stepmother. This true unsolved mystery has fascinated people for over 100 years.
Two people died on that day in 1892, but Lizzie continues to live on in American folklore.
An “edutainment” production, the show will feature Lynne Moulton and Joseph Zamparelli in multiple roles. The performance includes a mock trial that invites the audience to participate by questioning Lizzie and deciding her guilt or innocence.
Did she or didn’t she? You be the judge!
Tickets $20 each
Youth tickets for ages 12 to 17 will be offered at the door for $10 each.

Jerry Thornton, author of From Darkness to Dynasty
Since 2001 the Patriots have played in eight Super Bowl championships and won five, a run of excellence unparalleled in all professional sports. In a league designed to ensure that no one franchise can dominate over time, New England won for over a decade and a half. A dynasty that began with an improbable run to a championship in 2001 has rebuilt, rebooted, and retooled several times over, winning most recently in 2019. But during those years, no other franchise reached the same level of controversy, drama, and turmoil — or even came close. Jerry Thornton provides an all-access pass to the Patriots’ years of unparalleled greatness from the unique perspective of an observant, utterly dedicated fan.
Jerry writes daily for Barstool Sports and co-hosts their NFL podcast Laces Out. He’s a stand up comic working clubs all over the northeast and is the former co-host of WEEI sports radio’s “Dale and Holley with Thornton,” and NBC Sports Boston’s Patriots pregame show. He appears in HBO’s Emmy-winning Red Sox documentary “Reverse of the Curse of the Bambino” as well as the upcoming Deflategate film “Four Games in Fall.” And you can catch in him the popular web video series “Sh*t Pats Fans Say.” Jerry has written a million columns and he’s rocked them all.
