THE GARDEN

In 2000, this play went to the Edinburgh Fringe, and played a few spots around the Highlands, gaining good reviews. A uniquely Scottish take on the Adam and Eve Story, full of rough humour and big questions asked in broad Scottish accents.  The Garden has a prologue that tells the story of Creation, which you can choose to do or not.  A favourite with older youth theatres.

“Written in lively, accessible, urban Scots, this play is enormous fun.  A wonderful show.”  The Scotsman ****
