Auditions for Priscilla Biggadike musical


Auditions have been held in Lincolnshire for a musical based on the story of Priscilla Biggadike.

Priscilla was hanged at Lincoln Castle in 1868 for the wilful murder of her husband Richard Biggadike at their home in Stickney. Her lodger confessed to the crime a year later.

The auditions were held at BBC Lincolnshire, which is staging the show to celebrate the county's heritage.

The performance will take place inside Lincoln Castle prison on 7 April 2011.
