The Murder of Mary Lane - Halifax Fringe 2022
- Masks Required
- Limited Seating
70 MIN | $15.00
Just after four o'clock in the afternoon of July 5th, 1899 in Brandon, Manitoba, thirty-two year old Mary Lane, wife to prominent businessman Robert Lane and pregnant mother of four young children was shot in the back. As her servant girl Hilda Blake bathed her face with water she died without saying who had done it. On December 27th of that same year, Hilda would be hanged for the crime, one of only a handful of women to receive capital punishment in Canada. This play blends historical accounts and texts with speculative fiction in order to explore themes that still resonate today.
