But he has his garden, and in his garden some things grow while other things wither and die. Past present and future are all jostling against one another for room. While Harry is forgetting, young Joe is busy making memories. He needs to know Whatâs this? Whatâs that? Who? When? Why? How?
This is a story that is being forgotten and remembered at the same time. It is being lost and made. As the leaves fall from the branches of Harryâs fading memory, they turn into the green shoots of young Joeâs new stories.

For everyone aged 5â8 years old. Suitable for Years 1â 4.

A new play by award-winning writer Mike Kenny, The Gardener is a gentle tale about new siblings, grandparents and growing and changing. The story is told by one actor accompanied by live accordion music.
