About ‘The Secret Garden’
The Secret Garden is a children’s book published in 1911 which has since become a canonical children’s text. Despite its title, the book does not contain any supernatural features such as fairies or a fantastical world. Instead, it creates magic and splendor in the real world; in the character’s actual life. The story begins with a nine-year-old British girl called Mary Lennox who is growing up in India during the British Raj. Her mother and father are usually never around because the former is busy hosting social gatherings and the latter is an officer in the British Army. Therefore, Mary is left to her own devices amongst nurses and maids and is very spoilt.
A cholera outbreak takes the lives of her parents and she is sent to her maternal uncle in Britain who lives in a large mysterious mansion by his own. Uncle Archibald is reserved and often away from home so Mary’s care is entrusted to Martha, a maid, who does not accept Mary’s spoilt ways. She sends the young girl to work in a walled garden on the premises with Dickon, the gardener and Martha’s brother. She begins planting roses in this garden.
Things get complicated when Mary discovers another young boy in the mansion who turns out to be Colin, Uncle Archibald’s son. He has been kept in secrecy and told that he is extremely ill even though there is nothing wrong with him. Mary encourages him to work with her in the garden and he soon regains his strength.
As things unfold, one discovers that Uncle Archibald lost his wife (Colin’s mother) ten years ago when she fell from a tree in the walled garden while pregnant with Colin. She immediately went into labor but passed away giving birth to Colin. Archibald’s love for his wife leads him to dislike Colin and wall-off the garden. However, Uncle Archibald has a dream in which his wife asks him to go to the garden. He goes home to find his son all grown up and very healthy and the two begin discovering their bond.
The Secret Garden is one of those rare gems that despite being incredibly simplistic have a great deal of heart involved in them. It is a feel-good story which turns adversity into a positive force through love and tenderness. As a result, The Secret Garden has become a classic of children’s literature and become an influential story for many generations of children.
About the Play
The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s treatment of this story involves a great deal of song and dance as it is a musical. The pace of the story changes completely based on this format as the action becomes quicker and much more heightened than a non-musical representation would have. Even though it presents a realistic story, it is told in such a way that the whole world seems enchanted and removed from the real world.
The Washington Post compliments the play in these words; “Lucy Simon’s score has a yearning, magical pulse, and book writer-lyricist Marsha Norman’s adaptation of the beloved 1911 children’s novel has always been blessedly grown up, even as it welcomes audiences of nearly all ages.”
The show’s production quality is lauded by the DC Metro Theatre’s publication, particularly Anna louizos’ scenic representation of the secret garden and Ann Hould-Ward’s costume designs. They represent the accuracy of Victorian England while at the same time incorporate a vibrancy that is far removed from the era.
Where’s it playing?
“The Secret Garden” is a mobile production and is headed to Austin first and will run through October and November 2017 at the Sarofim Hall. It will then head to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a run at the Broward Center for performing arts through December 2017. The Secret Garden tickets for both these runs are on sale now.
