The classic children s book, beloved by several generations, creates a gorgeous and charming small cast play about love and transformation. Mary, a lonely and spoiled orphan girl, arrives at Misselthwaite Manor to no fanfare. Her uncle is almost always away, made bitter by the loss of his wife during childbirth ten years earlier. Left to her own devices to entertain herself, Mary discovers a secret garden, once her deceased aunt s favorite place, but now shut off from the world. Mary also discovers her cousin Colin, a sickly boy who s always kept isolated. Mary s attention and nurturing, both for the garden and for Colin, creates magical transformations
In a touching climax, the garden s magic inspires the sickly Colin to walk and his stooped father to stand tall and learn to love again.
