Research Visit to Polstead

15 June 2018

The cast took a field trip on Tuesday to Polstead village - the location where Maria Marten and the Red Barn Murder actually took place.

POLSTEAD director Hal Chambers and Stage Manager Penny joined the cast to explore the area and even visited Maria Marten's cottage. By strange coincidence, our Costume Designer, Faby Pym's mum owns the cottage! 

The cast also visited Polstead Hall which is featured in the play...
