The Gardener

By Mike Kenny · Age: 7+

Every season has the other seasons tucked away inside it….

Joe has a new baby sister and nobody wants to play with him. Nobody wants to play with old Uncle Harry either so together they begin to work on Uncle Harry’s garden. Even if Uncle Harry can’t remember ordinary things he and Joe create a year to remember.

The Gardener is a delightful production from the award winning playwright Mike Kenny, which looks at remembering and forgetting. This gentle piece is specifically designed for 6 to 8 year olds, their parents, grandparents and carers and has been a tremendous hit in primary schools!

This is me
Then
Small
Barely a shoot
A seed really
Ready to grow

Some years are bigger than others and this was one of the biggest.
