Direction by Christy McIntosh-Newsom

The season will close with the family and literary classic, “The Secret Garden,” presented at the beautiful Pequot Library May 10-19, 2019. The story revolves around young Mary Lennox, who is shuttled to England to live in her Uncle’s secluded and seemingly haunted mansion after her parents die in India. Once she finds the key to a secret garden, Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the house and the garden, showing us the power that “one small girl” can have when she “wants things to grow.”
