The Garden Party (Archive)

Garden Party Posterby Jimmy Chinn and Hazel Wyld

May 2015

It is Richard’s 75th birthday, and his wife Jan has planned a special garden party for him. It’s a glorious day, her three children from her previous marriage are coming, and a wonderful celebration is in prospect. What could possibly go wrong? A great deal, as it happens. Family revelations, sibling rivalries and the appearance of an uninvited guest help make this an absorbing drama from the outset, interlaced with comic and tender moments. An evening mot to be missed!
