Synopsis: 

Based on an historical account from 16th century France, this musical is about an 11 year old girl who is forced to marry Martin, an angry young boy of 14. The marriage is an unhappy one, and eight years later Martin deserts his home and family. Not a word is heard from him for another eight years, until he suddenly reappears, a changed man. Martin is now a kind and loving husband, and all goes well until Martin’s uncle decides to take him to court in an attempt to prove that Martin is not whom he appears to be.

The House of Martin Guerre was nominated for a Chalmer’s Award and was the recipient of three Dora Mavor Moore awards in Toronto (including Best New Musical) and six Joseph Jefferson Awards in Chicago (including Best New Musical). Keywords: Martin Guerre, imposter
