Theatre by the Lake's 2017 – 2018 family Christmas production is The Secret Garden.

“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.

Misselthwaite is a mysterious place full of dark corners and strange night-time noises, and Mary is sure there are secrets to unearth. With the help of some unexpected friends, Mary sets about discovering the legend of its secret garden, in one of literature’s most enduring and magical adventures.

Jessica Swale recently won the 2016 Olivier Award for Best Comedy for her play Nell Gwynn. Her other plays include Blue Stockings and acclaimed adaptations of Stig of the Dump and Sense and Sensibility. Accompanied by a delightful score and a menagerie of puppets, her richly imagined adaptation of Hodgson Burnett’s much loved classic is a Christmas must-see for all ages.

Suitable for ages 6+
