The Return

Inspired by the true story of Martin Guerre, The Return at the Tron Theatre, is a gripping play about the mystery of identity and the survival instinct.

The Return

About The Return

France, 1560. In the foothills of the Pyrenees, Bertrande tends to her livestock and mothers her young son, seven years after her husband disappeared. One day a stranger, Arnaud, walks into her life, and before long they decide to present him to the world as her long-lost husband – returned.

But is it possible that it really is her husband?

Inspired by the true story of Martin Guerre, The Return is a gripping play about the mystery of identity and the survival instinct, and asks whether we can ever truly know even those we love the best.

Commissioned and premiered by Eden Court, and written by Ellie Stewart, a rising star of Scottish playwriting, The Return is produced by the same creative team behind Eden Court's Not About Heroes in 2015.

World Premiere
