This version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel has been adapted for the stage by Dave Simpson. It's a beautiful portrayal of the well-loved children’s classic, which was last performed in Bournemouth 3 decades ago. A touching escape to the country for all the family to enjoy.
When Mary Lennox is sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle, everybody says she is the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It is true, too. Mary is pale, spoilt, and quite contrary. But she is also horribly lonely. Then, one day, she hears about a garden in the grounds of the manor that has been kept locked and hidden for years. When a friendly robin helps Mary to find the key, she discovers the most magical place anyone could imagine...
