THE SECRET GARDEN

12 Jul – 22 Aug 2024

The Secret Garden

By Frances Hodgson Burnett 

Adapted by Elizabeth Newman 


When orphaned Mary Lennox comes to live at her uncle’s great house on the Yorkshire Moors, she finds it full of secrets. At night, she hears crying down one of the long corridors. She tracks it down to her cousin Colin, who has spent his entire life in bed, unable to walk. 

One day, Mary finds a key that leads her to a garden held locked for years and completely overgrown. Mary and her friend Dickon nurse the garden back to life, bringing joy back to the house and those living there. 

Elizabeth Newman’s new adaptation celebrates the power of transformation and healing through nature. The Amphitheatre is the perfect setting for one of the most delightful and enduring classics of children’s literature.

Reviews

“Pitlochry’s artistic director Elizabeth Newman has made her own new stage adaptation, one that glows from its opening moments with love for, and understanding of, the basic dynamics of Hodgson Burnett’s bold narrative.”  The Scotsman
