After her parents die 10-year-old Mary has to leave India to live with her uncle in Yorkshire. At first she is

self-centred, selfish and aloof but soon she starts making her first ever friends among the servants at

Misselthwaite Manor. She learns of a secret walled garden and is determined to find it and to find out why

there is the mysterious sound of a boy crying in the night.

 

Considered by some to be the greatest book ever written for children. A theme is that when something is

neglected it withers and dies but when worked on and cared for it thrives. This applies not only to the

garden but to the characters Mary and her cousin Colin.

 

Barking Dog's two talented actors play all the children in the story while some children from the audience

get to play the grown-ups. With original music and audience participation as well as use of puppetry and

mime, this show is ideal for any book week and projects on nature, plants, travel, music or drama.
