Set at a time when humanity has run out of resources, The Garden (music - John Harris, text -Zinnie Harris) tells a dystopian tale of a couple at the end of their tether. Living on the 10th floor of a high-rise block they discover hope in the form of a strange tree growing through the floor of their kitchen.
Based on an original short play of the same name by Zinnie Harris, commissioned by the Traverse Theatre
in 2009 and winning a Scotsman Fringe First Award, this new operatic version was commissioned by soundfestival and premiered to critical acclaim in Aberdeen in 2012. The Garden has since toured to Edinburgh, London, Germany and Shanghai and makes a welcome return to Aberdeen this year.’
