The Secret Garden
Frances Hodgson Burnett
“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”
When Mary Lennox’s parents die suddenly she is sent live with her uncle at his country
estate in the Yorkshire moors. A far distant place to India where she grew up a spoiled and self-centred child, Mary soon discovers friendship and laughter with Martha the housemaid and Ben Weatherstaff the gardener and when a friendly robin helps her discover a secret garden, life for all those at the estate will alter for the better.
Folk music weaves through this stage adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic children’s tale the whole family will love
