- Several years after Lizzie Borden's trial and acquittal following the murder of her father and stepmother, she lives with her sister in another house in the same district.
- One evening she invites a number of players from a visiting touring company for the evening.
- They re-enact the circumstances of the crime, playing various characters involved.
- Later the Bordens receive an unexpected visit from Bridget Sullivan who was their servant at the time of the crime, and a crucial witness.
- It transpires that afterwards Lizzie gave her a sum of money.
- Why? To conceal her own guilt?
- Or was Bridget, in fact, the murderess?
- No firm conclusions are possible, but as the final Curtain suggests, this solution might at least be imaginable.
- Period 1905.
