The Return by Ellie Stewart

An Eden Court production.

France, 1960. 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.
