It isn't easy to write an absolutely bloodless drama about the Lizzie Borden case, but that's what Sharon Pollock has done in "Blood Relations," her newest play. The play is based on the case of Lizzie Borden. On August 4, 1892, Borden's father's body was "discovered" by Lizzie in a downstairs room of the family home. Soon, the Bordens' maid, Sullivan, discovered the body of Borden's stepmother. The subsequent investigation and trial of Lizzie set a precedent for media coverage.

Miss Pollock is a prize-winning playwright in her native Canada. Her last play seen in New York, "One Tiger to a Hill," was a prison hostage melodrama in which platitudinous polemics and cardboard characters managed to muffle any gunfire. "Blood Relations" is in the same vein. Looking back at the Borden case, Miss Pollock has come up with the thesis that Lizzie was a feminist before her time - a strong-minded, justice-seeking rebel at war against the stultifying Victorian society of Fall River, Mass.
