With Giles Shenton as Herbert Pinnegar
Described as "Downton Abbey with gardening tips" Old Herbaceous is the humorus love story of a single minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced sell out audiences around the country over the last two years.
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 legendary 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.
