In 1827, Willam Corder murdered Maria Marten, the mother of his illegitimate child, and buried her body in the Red Barn

Because of his wife's recurring dream, Thomas Marten searched the barn and discovered the body of his daughter

The fact that this production gets unsullied, hearty fun from these macabre ingredients is proof of its sureness - of its energy that pushes aside any attempt to think seriously about the horrors
