Intimate theatre at its best, The House of Marcelle

The arts are littered with beautiful works based on lost love letters, A. Vasudevan writes. The House of Marcelle, Explore the Arch’s latest offering, joins them, drawing on the missives of Marcelle van Caillie and lover-later-husband Henry Sanford. A multi-sensory work, it brings the forgotten female artist vividly to life.
