After a significant break, Tarvin Community Centre are very pleased to announce the first show for the autumn season from Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. On Friday 17th September 2021 at 7.30 pm they are delighted to present 'Old Herbaceous', a humorous and touching portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants. A oneman show, written by and starring Peter Maqueen, 'Old Herbaceous' has been described by The Guardian as & quot; Downton Abbey with gardening tips!
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.
Fiona Lewis, Arts Coordinator, said "We are so pleased to be able to offer this unique and gentle piece that has been enthralling rural audiences for many years. Full of wit and humour, it is also a love story set in a world that has largely disappeared. It will appeal to a wide age range and although I expect that gardeners will thoroughly enjoy it, I can assure you that green fingers are not required"
Please note that the audience is advised that wearing masks would be preferred during the show.
