The Head Gardener

Gardening is good for you!

Written and performed by Jake and Warren Oldershaw. Directed by Graeme Rose. Sound by Joe Henderson Tamm.

Over the last few years the nation has been getting down and dirty with the soil and the seeds, the roots and the tubers. From windowsill herb gardens to grand projects, it seems we can’t get enough of the green-fingered stuff.


Brothers Jake and Warren Oldershaw have been propagating a delightful theatre show that digs deep into the reasons why we could all do with a bit more horticulture in our lives.


During each performance they’ll design, draught and bring to life a unique and beautiful garden; share fascinating stories of different plants and species; tell personal tales of why gardening is so important for mental health, and maybe even throw a few songs into the mix. 


Blooming lovely!
