Old Herbaceous

Kick In The Head

Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips”, Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced audiences around the country.

An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The evening blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century.

As Old Herbaceous, renowned actor Giles Shenton truly lives the part of the legendry Head Gardener, Herbert Pinnegar, inviting you to feel included in a private chat from a bygone, comforting age. Keeping you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, Old Herbaceous will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.

“Giles Shenton is superb…completely captivating, he has the audience’s attentions and imaginations throughout” The Reviews Hub

Once Upon A Labrador

Once Upon A Labrador is a new show, with Alfie the Labrador making his theatrical debut. It would be quite wrong to suggest that Alfie is a “performing dog”. He does not walk on a tightrope, juggle, or dance on his hind legs. Don’t think this is because his grandfather was Carpenny Walpole, Great British Champion, International Champion, and Nordic Champion. Alfie is very modest about his ancestry and never mentions former achievements by close relations. The reason for his reluctance to follow current trends and audition for TV talent shows is simply that Alfie is happy to be a Labrador. Nothing more. And it has to be said that he maintains this role with dignity and distinction. Charles Garland writes whimsical verse, plays, music and trivial comedy lines. But he is also the proud partner of Alfie, and hopes that you will come and see them both doing what they do best.

Saturday 3rd March 2018, 7.30pm Tickets £10 - call 01379 384505 to book.


Measure for Measure

RoughCast Theatre Company

Passion, injustice, hypocrisy and power are at the centre of Shakespeare’s darkly comic exploration of social justice and sexual politics.

Lord Angelo, appointed to govern in the absence of the Duke, insists on the strict implementation of ‘the all binding law’, sentencing to death the young Claudio for getting his wife-to-be pregnant. But what of Angelo’s control and authority when he falls prey to exactly those urges when Isabella, a novice nun, pleads for her brother’s life. Caught up in the action are a medley of nuns and prostitutes, a pirate, pimps and friars.

Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.

RoughCast return to Wingfield Barns with their 13th Shakespeare.

Sunday 18th March, 7.30pm Tickets £10/£8.50/£5 (conc/full-time student). Call 01379 384505 to book.
