The Secret Garden

NEW PRODUCTION 2022

Nicola Werenowska’s new adaptation of Francis Hodgson Burnett’s classic story The Secret Garden is due to be staged at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds in the summer of 2022.

This new adaptation will follow the much-loved story of The Secret Garden, exploring themes of friendship, self-discovery and acceptance whilst challenging the approach to disability in the original story and changing it into a celebration of inclusivity. The cast will be a mixture of four professional actors and 24 young people from our Youth Theatre Inclusion Groups and local SEN schools.
