Maria’s story sent shock waves throughout the country. The Red Barn Murder (as it became known) was national news, inspiring writers and filmmakers down the ages. The sort of gruesome tale 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. Until now. Hal Chambers and Beth Flintoff’s spine-tingling retelling rediscovers her story, bringing it back to vivid, urgent life.

The production you are buying a ticket for is being sold at full capacity, in line with the current government guidelines. However, there is a chance that by the time the production happens we may be requested by law to return to a socially distanced capacity.
If we have to reduce the capacity then we will confirm bookings based on the date on which they were booked with the earliest bookings being given priority.

If this is not possible you will be eligible for a full refund.
