Maria Marten or The Murder in the Red Barn

"The production really cooks whenever Goins and Hodge take center stage. Both display an innate understanding of melodramatic acting tropes that elevate their performances beyond caricature... With a beautifully expressive face and lilting voice, Goins captures Maria’s sweetly trusting nature. You shudder, as you should, to think of the sad end that will befall her"

-Cameron Kelsall, Broad Street Review
