Based on a true story from 16th Century France, The House of Martin Guerre follows the journey of young peasant girl Bertrande, forced to marry miserable, abusive Martin Guerre. After eight years of marriage, he abandons her and their infant son.

Years later, a stranger claiming to be Martin Guerre returns, war-ravaged, regretful, completely transformed. Bertrande accepts her new, loving husband at first, but four years later, declares him an imposter, and he is jailed and sent to trial.

Leslie Arden is one of Canada’s foremost musical theatre composers. Her extensive career has taken her around the world, but her love of theatre came from watching The Charlottetown Festival, where her mother, Cleone Duncan, performed for many years in Anne of Green Gables – The Musical™.  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).

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
