When the grandfather clock in the hallway strikes thirteen, Tom finds his way into a secret garden from the past.
Based on the Carnegie Medal winning classic by Philippa Pearce.
When Tom is sent away for the summer after his brother falls ill, he’s never felt more alone. There are no children around, nothing to explore, not even a garden to play in. But when the grandfather clock in the hallway chimes thirteen times, Tom finds his way into a secret garden from the past. Here he meets Hatty, a girl every bit as lonely as he is. Together these two new friends enjoy fantastic adventures, but with each new journey through time, strange things begin to happen — and Tom must solve the mystery of the midnight garden!
In the autumn of 2016, the Lane End Players brought Philippa Pearce’s immortal novel, loved by generations, to the stage. This classic tale of two lonely children separated by time was lovingly adapted for the stage by the award-winning playwright David Wood.
With the Players’ trademark mix of imagination, humour and technical skill, the mystery and magic of this beloved tale came to life like never before.
A wonderful story for the whole family!
