Come to the garden
FEBRUARY 11-27, 2022 | WHITAKER CENTER
This production is dedicated to the memory of Margaret B. Masters, a long time friend and supporter of Theatre Harrisburg.
Orphaned in India, 11-year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her reclusive uncle Archibald, whose invalid son Colin has had to bear the guilt of his mother Lily’s death. When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, locked shut and overgrown with vines, Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. Surrounded by spirits from the past, who both warn and welcome her, Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the estate, showing us the power that a single individual can have to bring light into darkness.
