The Secret Garden, winner of three Tony Awards, is based on the enchanting novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, who was living in Knoxville when her writing career began. The story centers on Mary Lennox, a young girl orphaned in India and sent to Yorkshire, England, to live with her reclusive uncle and his invalid son. Mary is angry and obstinate but when she encounters a neglected garden and its secrets gradually come to light, both Mary and the garden begin to bloom. With music by Lucy Simon, and book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Marsha Norman, The Secret Garden is a treasure for the whole family. Children and adults alike will be impacted by its themes of redemption, forgiveness, love and learning.
