Return, The

France, 1560.  In the foothills of the Pyrenees, Bertrande tends to her livestock and mothers her young son seven years after her husband’s disappearance. Then a stranger, Arnaud, walks into her life, and before long they decide to present him to the world as her long-lost spouse. But is it possible that Arnaud really is Bertrande’s long-lost 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 most.

The critical consensus

It’s held together throughout by the golden thread of Emilie Patry’s central performance, strong, passionate and true.

A rewrite of a famous film that does little to prove its necessity.
