OLD HERBACEOUS - a one man play by Reginald Arkell. Dramatised by Alfred Shaughnessy
The play is a PMac and Theatre by the Lake production. Performed and produced by Peter Macqueen. Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings at the back of his ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a Gloucestershire manor house. Herbert Pinnegar, now in his twilight years is full of memories and tales of a by-gone era. In between potting up and potting on, he recounts his journey from orphan boy to legendary head gardener “Old Herbaceous” and tells of his friendship with the lady of the house, Mrs Charteris.
Sown with the seeds of gardening wisdom, this charming one man show is a love story – a humorous portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.
