In Murderess, six notorious killers from American history  -- Laura Fair, Ma Hossack, Celia Bryan, Jane Toppan, Belle Gunness, and Lizzie Borden – welcome you into their space to reveal their secrets in a suite of monologues written and woven together by Anne Bertram.  Each woman offers her version of events, illuminating some of the most infamous serial murders in early modern America.

Portrayals in the press, the courts, and in local legend will be challenged or confirmed, leaving audiences to decide what is true and what is folklore.

The women’s accounts are at turns emotionally compelling, terrifying, and darkly comedic, revealing powerful, thought-provoking, and mysterious truths about their actions and the ages in which they lived.
