The Allotment 1pm performance
Tickets: £6.00 includes a Tea and Scone
A world premiere (2011), in co-production with ASSEMBLY, by Scottish writer Jules Horne, ALLOTMENT follows the complex and quirky relationship between sisters Dora and Maddy as they live out the seasons on their allotment, playing out their rivalries among the plants. When the unexpected rocks their uneasy balance, it¡¦s time to do something radical¡K
Join Dora and Maddy for a cup of tea and a homemade scone and ponder - Do flowers matter as much as vegetables? a dark comedy, which is also a celebration of gardening, where the actresses dig, plant and perform on top of a shed. With changeable weather constantly shifting the nature of the allotment, ALLOTMENT is a feast for the senses - a tale of life, death, Pink Fir Apple potatoes and the secret power of worms.
Please note: the production will go on whatever the weather - rain, drought or snow, so come prepared!
