Event description

'THE BALLAD OF MARIA MARTEN' - BA Performing Arts

Summer, 1827. In a red barn in Suffolk, Maria Marten awaits her lover. A year later, hidden in a grain sack under the floor of the barn, Maria's body is found, barely identifiable - and the manhunt begins...

The Red Barn Murder 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 whilst sending shockwaves throughout the country, Maria's own story was lost.
The Ballad of Maria Marten rediscovers her story, bringing it back to vivid, urgent life.
