The Secret Garden at York Theatre Royal

The secret is out for York’s forthcoming family summer show.

The much loved classic children’s book The Secret Garden is being brought to life on stage at York Theatre Royal this summer in a magical production for all the family.

The production will be accompanied by a programme of exciting activities with a chance for youngsters to explore and play in the theatre’s Secret Studio Garden.

It’s 1910, and spoilt, lonely Mary Lennox lives a life of luxury in India with her aristocratic parents. But when an unexpected twist of fate suddenly leaves her orphaned, she is sent to live with an unknown uncle in Misselthwaite Manor on the wild Yorkshire Moors. With the help of some unexpected friends, Mary sets about discovering the legend of its secret garden, in one of literature’s most enduring and magical adventures…

Originally written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this adaptation by Olivier award-winning playwright Jessica Swale features puppetry and live music set to an original score by Barnaby Race.
