Lizzie Borden and the 40 Whacks performance @ Library, Tue Jul 14, 7PM

Come and Escape the Ordinary!

The Delvena Theatre Company will be presenting Lizzie Borden and the 40 Whacks by Fran Baron at the Westborough Public Library on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 7:00 pm, as part of the adult summer reading program.

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, Jr. 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 at the Westborough Public Library on July 14.

Lynne Moulton has performed several roles for Delvena Theatre including her IRNE nominated Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Sissy in Piece of My Heart and also for numerous other theatre companies in the New England area. She received her acting training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art under the direction of Sir Robert Palmer and at Trinity Rep Conservatory.

Joseph Zamparelli, Jr., is an actor, director and producer. A graduate of Boston College (Psychology/Theater Arts), he went on to the professional training program at Circle in the Square Theater School in NYC. In addition to commercial film and television work, he is Producing/Artistic Director of BostonAlive.

The Delvena Theatre Company was founded in 1992 and has performed at various venues, most often at the Boston Center for the Arts.~ The company was nominated for five Independent Reviewers of New England awards.~ Its production of ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ was on Theatre Mirror’s Best List for acting, directing and production.~ Presentations of ‘Anna Weiss’ and ‘Beyond Therapy’ were included on Theatre Mirror’s best play list and ‘Blue Heart’ was placed on Aisle Say’s best list.

Lizzie Borden and the 40 Whacks is supported in part by a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Escape the Ordinary is sponsored by the Westborough Library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and the Friends of the Westborough Library. For more information, contact the Library at (508) 366-3050.
