    Toronto Musical Concerts Presents: The House of Martin Guerre, the epic Canadian Musical by Leslie Arden ( Music, lyrics & co-book) and Anna Theresa Cascio (co-book) will be staged in concert in Toronto for the first time since 1997.

    16th century France - a new consciousness emerges while Protestantism takes a firm hold in the heart of Europe. Bertrande, a young catholic peasant girl, suffers eight years of abusive arranged marriage to Martin Guerre, only to be abandoned with their infant son. Years later, a stranger arrives, claiming to be Martin - But completely transformed. Though Bertrande accepts her new loving husband, their happiness is threatened by the jealousy and greed of others. She is ultimately forced to denounce him as an impostor, and he is jailed and sent to trial.

    The House of Martin Guerre centres on the poignant love story of Bertrande, an individual striving to find truth and dignity despite the collective forces working against her.
