written and performed by Lucy Grace
at Pleasance Theatre, London, 5-7 May 2016, then touring
Monday to Friday, Lucy catches the 8am train to London Bridge.
9am, her day begins at Insignia Asset Management, where she is in charge of the photocopier, printer, scanner, shredder and binder. She is the only person in the office who knows how to clear a paper jam.
She’s starting to wonder how this fits into the Grand Scheme of Things.
One day, her life takes an unexpected turn when she rescues the long-suffering office pot plant.
In her flat, 24 floors up, she begins to plant, cultivate and nurture her own personal wilderness.
Garden is a humorous and poetic story about trying to form a meaningful connection to the world, when you feel out of step with everyone else in it.
