Nutshell Theatre production: Allotment by Jules Horne
14th August 2021 @ 7:00 pm
“I carry my eyes around I point them at things. And everything’s so far away… but that’s not how the world is. Not for anyone else… Maybe grass is like skin. Maybe taste is like touch.”
Closely bound sisters Maddy and Dora do battle over flying teddies, stubborn weeds and the eternal question – do flowers matter more than vegetables? Join them for a cuppa, a homemade scone and a feast for the senses, all played out in the earth of an allotment. The sanctuary of Kate Nelson’s own allotment inspired her to stage a show there, so she worked with writer Jules Horne to devise the story of Maddy and Dora. With the support of Assembly, ALLOTMENT marked Nutshell’s return to the Fringe after a five-year break and went on to win an award from the Centre For Sustainable Practice in the Arts and a Scotsman Fringe First in 2011.
