Old Herbaceous

An evening of warmth, charm, humour and pathos, told by a man looking back over his life and over English rural social history.

It all takes place in a old greenhouse in the gardens of a Gloucestershire manor house where you imagine perfect lawns and well tendered borders.
It centres on the enduring relationship between gardener Herbert Pinnergar (nicknamed Herbaceous) and Lady Charteris of the manor house and an unexpected love story.

As he tells his tales, Herbaceous potters around the greenhouse, taking cuttings, sowing seeds and mixing fertiliser, engaging the audience all the way. This gently humorous, touching play, tugs at the heart strings and tickles the ribs without resorting to cliche.

You can even ask a gardening question in the interval...

The show lasts 2 hours, 15 mins with a interval and will be staged in the Village Hall at 7:30pm on Friday, 30th May 2014.
