A thrilling retelling of the story of Maria Marten and the Red Barn.
Summer, 1827. In a red barn Maria Marten awaits her lover. A year later her body is found.
It was an event that had all the hallmarks of a classic crime drama – a missing body, a country location, a disreputable squire and a village stuck in its age-old traditions. But in all this hysteria Maria’s own story gets lost.
Hal Chambers and Beth Flintoff’s spine-tingling retelling rediscovers her story, bringing it back to vivid, urgent life in The Ballad Of Maria Marten.
Told through the eyes of Maria and the women who loved her this beautifully staged production brings the power of movement, music and storytelling together for a heart-stopping evening of theatrical magic.
