Mary Lennox arrives at Missellthwaite Manor – a house on the edge of a moor; a house with a hundred rooms, nearly all shut up and with their doors locked; a house full of secrets.
Her uncle, Mr Craven, keeps himself shut up in the West Wing – a man with his own secrets to keep. Mary hates this place. Until she meets Martha, Dickon, and old Ben Weatherstaff, who teach her about the moors and the creatures who live there… And about a garden – a garden that remains locked. Mary starts to settle into life in her new home until one night she hears the sound of a child crying. Does Missellthwaite Manor have one more secret to tell?
Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic tale of friendship is lovingly re-told by Nicola Werenowska with a cast of local young people supported by a team of professional actors and industry professionals.
