Set in 1827, this adaptation of the famous Red Barn Murder, focused on a woman scorned and explored the different versions of what happened to Maria Marten. This adaptation sought to discover the flaws in Corder’s short trial leading to his execution before a crowd of thousands. Maria, a woman ahead of her time, fell in love with the charming Corder and was kept in the dark about his shady background with criminals and prostitutes as well as an alleged affair with Maria’s stepmother, Anne. Who was Maria’s Stepmother? How were the likes of Beauty Smith, the renowned criminal, and Hannah, the London prostitute, linked to Corder throughout history and then dismissed in his trial? We dared to ask the question of what really happened to Maria that night she disappeared from the Red Barn, and was Corder a villain? Or just a pawn in a deadly game?
