Description

The Norwich Players present
The Secret Garden By Frances Hodgson Burnett
Adapted by Jessica Swale

‘When a garden’s kept proper, all weeded and neat, that chases the wild away. But when it’s left alone, for nature, who knows what secret things’d grow there….’

It’s 1910, and spoilt, lonely Mary Lennox lives a life of luxury in India with her aristocratic parents. But when an unexpected twist of fate suddenly leaves her orphaned, she is sent to live with an unknown uncle in Misselthwaite Manor on the wild Yorkshire Moors.

It is a mysterious place full of dark corners and strange night-time noises. Mary is sure there is more to it than meets the eye. Why will her uncle not see her, and who is the boy living in the attic? As her confidence grows, Mary makes incredible and unexpected new friends including the wild Dickon who can talk to animals. With his help she finds the key to Misselthwaite’s secret garden and unlocks a magical kingdom where nothing is dull and everything lives.

Frances Hodgon Burnett’s timeless story of hope over fear is brought colourfully to life in this faithful adaptation, by the acclaimed writer of Nell Gwynn and Blue Stockings.
