The Ballad Of Maria Marten is a revisionist retelling of a harrowing true crime in 1827, which sheds light on a complex tale of love, loss, prejudice, and patriarchal power.
Despite the fact that this is a true crime dram, this is also very much a story of female friendship and joy, and one that sadly resonates strongly today.
This show is recommended for people aged 12 and over.
