Description

Summer, 1827. In a red barn in Suffolk, England, Maria Marten awaits her lover. A year later, her body is discovered. It was a gruesome, sensational event that stirred imagination and fascinated the public. The star of the show became her killer. Playwright Beth Flintoff shines a new light on the life of Maria Marten and the courage, support, faith, and perseverance required to recognise and stand against the commonplace, poor treatment of women that existed then... and even now.
