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.
