    about the show:

    the herb garden is an original musical by felix elliott, which he was fortunate enough to workshop this term in the adc bar. We are over the moon to reveal that it has been #upgraded to a corpus mainshow, week 3 of easter term (16-20 may)!!!
    Kate and Jack (our wonderful directors) Felix (our writer and general mastermind) and myself (Hannah - the producer  - she/her!) are looking for a wider prod team to kick things off - experience would be great but is definitely not a requirement :)


    ‘we choose who we invite / through the front door of our life ’

    Sky, a precocious but quiet teenager, gets caught smoking a zoot and is sentenced to live with their teacher, Miss Court. Between Miss Court’s caution to maintain boundaries and Sky’s disinterest in interacting at all, neither of them is expecting the other to be anything except a housemate. But a badly-timed Covid-19 infection forces the two to spend 10 days with no social options except one another.
    What emerges from the ashes of this explosion of misfortune could either be a beautiful gift, or a disaster…
    An original musical about friendship, trust, identity and weed.
