The Murder of Maria Marten

A short play by Constance Cox
Performed in July 1986
Faringdon Community Centre

This is a version of the famous nineteenth-century crime in which an innocent young country girl is murdered by a local squire who had earlier seduced her and is now anxious to marry an heiress. Partly through the agency of a gypsy, however, retribution overtakes the villain. Ingeniously telescoped in time and place into one simple setting.
