About: The Mysterie of Maria Marten and the Murder in the Red Barn

Tongues are wagging as the drunken yokels in a small Essex village get mixed up in the biggest murder mystery of 1827…

Dashing Squire Corder is determined to seduce young peasant girl Maria. But what fate awaits the pretty maiden in his infamous Red Barn?

When Maria disappears, Corder is accused. Is this upper class rogue really a murderous villain? Enter Lady Augusta Holmes – the eccentric, know-it-all sleuth to discover the truth.

Chris Bond takes a story based on real life events and adds songs, suspense and a generous dollop of laughter – but watch out for the talking scarecrows – in this bawdy Victorian melodrama!
