Old Herbaceous

Friday 10 March, 2023 at 7:30 pm

Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings at the back of his ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a Gloucestershire manor house is Herbert Pinnegar. Now in his twilight years, he’s full of memories and tales of a bygone 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 seeds of gardening wisdom, this charming one man show is a love story – a humorous and touching portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.

Written by Reginald Arkell and dramatised by Alfred Shaughnessy

“Macqueen’s simple one-man show is an astonishing performance”. News & Star

” A delightful show – and not just for old codgers and plant lovers!”
