The number of post-trial, post-hatchet, Maplecroft plays is ever- growing. The public never wearies of imagining the possibilites of Lizzie’s life after the acquittal. If she was guilty, did she suffer twinges of conscience? Was she depressed- lonely? If she was innocent- how horrible was it living under the cloud of suspicion all those years? Why did Emma leave her sister? Who were Lizzie’s few friends who continued to call at the house on French St. ? So many unanswered questions opens up a rich field for exploration.
