Wed 27 Jun, Guildhall Theatre drama
Produced by Kick In The Head Directed by Simon Downing With Giles Shenton as Herbert Pinnegar Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips”,Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced audiences all around the country. An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The evening blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century. As Old Herbaceous, renowned actor Giles Shenton truly lives the part of the legendry Head Gardener, Herbert Pinnegar, inviting you to feel included in a private chat from a bygone, comforting age. Keeping you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, Old Herbaceous will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.
