Synopsis

It is a year since the death of Ivan, an inspirational theatre director and teacher, and his widow is struggling to come to terms with her loss. A group of close friends, many of whom are or were actors, come to spend the weekend with her to offer their support and to celebrate his memory in an entertaining and moving performance before they scatter his ashes in the garden. The events of the day trigger different responses from all of them and bring to the fore their dreams, disappointments and unfulfilled relationships; in coming together they attempt to find consolation and some kind of resolution to the complications of their own lives. BACK TO THE GARDEN is both an elegy to lost love and an acknowledgement of the uncertainties of present love and these themes are explored with humour and tenderness by the improvising cast.
