    SOUND

    Set at a time when humanity has run out of resources, John and Zinnie Harris’ The Garden tells a dystopian tale of a couple at the end of their tether. Living on the 10th floor of a high-rise block, hope emerges in the form of a strange tree growing through their kitchen linoleum.

    Based on an original short play of the same name by Zinnie Harris, commissioned by the Traverse Theatre in 2009 and winner of a Scotsman Fringe First Award as part of the World Is Too Much season, this new operatic version was commissioned by sound and
    premiered in Aberdeen in 2012.

    Zinnie Harris is Associate Director at the Traverse Theatre.

    Part of the Made in Scotland Showcase 2015.

    • "Harris' story can stand alongside anything from the late twentieth century new wave of ecologically-inclined, short-form science-fiction, even as it hints of fresh Edens to come.” ★★★★
