About the production
This production was again based on research undertaken by the theatre group – this time on the great plant collectors of the seventeenth century, especially Royal Gardener, John Tradescant, as well as contemporary attitudes to gardening.
And on the cusp of the new millennium the theatre group felt Janus, god of beginnings and endings, needed reawakening to question the directions we might take.
The production was created in partnership with East Dorset Heritage Trust.
Lyrics taken from one of the production’s songs, ‘…tonight, tonight, we’ll sing your song tonight, beneath the tulip tree…’
