Garden of delight

 

 

We live in a landscape full of drama – its grand forms, rich and
changing colours, its dazzling light deepening at dusk, softened at
dawn, its ancient stories imprinted in the sand and rocks, its
spaciousness and then its more intimate folds. No genius of stagecraft
could ever equal it – all credit to the team behind The First Garden for
recognising this and risking the challenges for the presentation of
their play.

The gods were with them on Saturday evening for the premiere of the
play, written by husband and wife team, Chris and Natasha Raja. It tells
a story about Olive Pink and the creation of the botanical garden that
bears her name and is staged right there, where she once lived, at first
in a tent, later in a rudimentary hut. KIERAN FINNANE reviews. PHOTO: Natasha Raja as Miss Pink. Courtesy Ben Convery.
