Kate Goodman, a widow, is desperate to get out of a first date. She turns to the one person who can help: her deceased husband, Jake. Botanic Garden, a funny, poignant portrait of an imperfect marriage between people who always loved each other, even when they didn't get along. Scenes shift between Kate's present and scenes from her past marriage that will ring familiar to anyone married a long time. Fresh and engaging with the intricacies of a long-term relationship this story is about the trials and joys of long-term relationships, loss, and renewal.
The two-hander, highly acclaimed Botanic Garden, directed by Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis, premiered in 2008 at Chicago's Victory Garden Theater.
"It's a play about life, about coping with the comedy and tragedy of living; it's a drama laced with wit and humor, insight and wisdom." - CHICAGO THEATER REVIEW
The play runs approximately 60 minutes without an intermission.
Botanic Garden performed by M&M Performing Art Company, Inc. Resident Theatre Company of Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, and traveling performances in libraries and community centers bringing quality live theater to intimate spaces.
