The Secret Garden

Directed by Larry Cox, Jr.

This beloved Victorian classic by author Frances Hodgson Burnett comes to life through this beautifully haunting score by Lucy Simon and book by Marsha Norman. Mary Lennox, losing her parents due to a plague in India, moves to a secluded British manor to live with her uncle Archibald Craven and his sickly son Colin. The manor, haunted by spirits and guilt, lives in the shadows of the past and the cries of the present. Mary, with the help of her new friends Martha, Dickon, Ben, and a key to a garden, begins to unlock the secrets of the house, helping all things grow. Winner of 3 Tony and 4 Drama Desk awards.

“The Secret Garden” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
