The-GardnerThe Gardener is inspired by Karel Capek’s novella The Gardener’s Year

Directed by Tony Cownie

Designed by Ed Robson

Frank’s been having a bit of trouble looking after himself lately. He’s been missing his meals and maybe not getting out quite as much as he knows he should. So he’s now gone into a retirement home. It’s a nice place, with nice people, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it…but Frank misses his Garden and all the joy that sharing a life with nature, and with his wife, had once brought him.

The Gardener is an intimate portrait of a lifetime spent in love with the beauty and simplicity of nature and of the challenges we all meet as we age and face the last great question at the closure of our own life-story.

Due to the nature of the set, this studio play has a very limited capacity of only 20 people per performance and very early booking is advised.

The Gardner runs from Wednesday 29 March to Saturday 1 April
