The Secret Garden at Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden, Manchester 18 — 20 August 2017 Tickets from £16 — Book now

Orphaned by a cholera outbreak in India, Mary is placed under the care of her grief-stricken uncle in the Yorkshire moors.

When she comes across a secret garden locked and left to grow wild, Mary is determined to get access but in doing so she will uncover a lot more than an over grown patch of land – where are those mysterious cries coming from? Why is the garden locked?

Heartbreak Productions have been touring both the UK and abroad for over 25 years. The Secret Garden is part of company’s 2017 Summer Season which also includes Billionaire Boy, Northanger Abbey, Murder on the Terrace and The Taming of the Shrew.
