THE HOUSE OF MARTIN GUERRE IN CONCERT

Avon Theatre
Wednesday, October 30
8:00 pm

This condensed concert of Leslie Arden’s award-winning musical follows the journey of Bertrande, a peasant woman who suffers eight years of abusive marriage to Martin Guerre, only to be abandoned with their infant son. Years later, a stranger arrives, claiming to be Martin – completely transformed. Though Bertrande accepts her new loving husband, their happiness is threatened by the jealousy and greed of others. Set in the tumultuous times of 16th-century France, when the strict doctrines of the Middle Ages were finally giving way to the freer thought of the early modern period, this story, based on true events, epitomizes the personal and social costs of breaking boundaries.
