Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved
victorian classic, The Secret Garden, blossoms anew in
this enchanting musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon.
When young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is
sent to live with her uncle, hermit Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing,
secluded manor on the British heath. Inside the haunting house upon the hill,
Mary finds a reclusive, long-suffering collection of souls. Since her aunt
Lily’s death, Mary’s uncle has pushed away his surviving loved ones, leaving
his bedridden son, Colin, alone. Sickly Colin, hidden away in the depths of the
manner, bears the guilt of his mother’s death on his crippled shoulders. When
Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, locked shut and overgrown with
vines, stubborn Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was.
