Holy shit I very much enjoyed the relation of the play with Lizzie Borden Quite cynical and well thought out Well, this was an amazing read and play as well Not going to lie, it was a bit confusing because The Actress is Lizzie while Miss Lizzie was the maid, so it seemed so confusing and cynical as I noticed that Pollock can easily fool the reader in thinking who the actual Lizzie is However, you realize in the end that The Actress is actually her lover.

Just read Blood Relations for my english class This was creepy and definitely an interesting format I reslly enjoyed the dramatic text and how each scene was super vivid 4 5 stars. 2.5 5 I only read Blood Relations It was a relatively interesting read, and quite brief I would like to see the play. I read Blood Relations none of the other plays in this collection. My english class and I went out to see a production of Blood Relations out at the University of British Columbia a few days ago, and so I decided to borrow this book from my teacher and read the play afterwards The production was amazing, and so was the play.It was so deliciously creepy, and I felt unsettled through most of the second act, something which I reveled in It s amazing to see the Actress so quickly become Lizzie, and her character was my absolute favourite The ending was mind boggling and once again, creepy and unsettling, and spectacular for those reasons.If you like creepy plays where you legitimately end up with chills and shivers down your back, this is for you. I ve tried to read Pollock before but just couldn t get into it I read Blood Relations and was hooked I finished it in one night and couldn t put it down I would love to act in it sometime, parcticularly the role of Lizzie Bridget, and it may well be one of my favorite plays yet.
