Outdoor theatre: the Secret Garden

Heartbreak Productions present their take on the classic children's story.

  • Booking essential

Mary Lennox, after being orphaned in India, is sent to live on her uncle's estate. A rather sour and unhappy little girl, she struggles to find her feet in a strange new place. Her stubborn curiosity leads her down a garden path to a locked door, overgrown and forgotten. Behind the door, this secret garden holds the restorative magic that will bring hope, kindness, and friendship that crosses social divides...
