Our Christmas show goes ahead even in Tier 4 – in the form of recorded performances shared by Zoom.
And it’s a story well worth tuning in for. Young Mary Lennox is orphaned in India and goes to stay with her uncle in Yorkshire. She doesn’t fit in to her new surroundings, but then she meets Dickon, whose life revolves around nature. Together the two grow closer and discover a secret garden – and as the garden transforms so do the lives of Mary, her uncle and her invalid cousin, and the power of new life casts its blessing over everyone…
According to the Sunday Independent, ‘Neil Duffield’s adaptation is as faithful as it is light in touch… there is joy here, there is hope, and there is a startling level of pure magical transcendence… An absolute ‘must see’.’
The Irish Times remarked that ‘the audience loved every minute’ while The Stage said that it ‘holds an audience of children spellbound’.
In other words, it’s the perfect family show for Christmas!
