Outdoor Theatre at Hawick Museum Allotment by Jules Horne


Nutshell presents Allotment by Jules Horne. 

Join sisters Dora and Maddy in their allotment as they ponder: Do flowers matter as much as vegetables?  

Allotment follows their complex and quirky relationship as they live out the seasons and play out their rivalries among the plants. When the unexpected rocks their uneasy balance, it’s time to do something radical… 

With changeable weather constantly shifting their mood and nature, Allotment is a feast for the senses – a tale of life, death, Pink Fir Apple potatoes, and the secret power of worms.  

The production will go on whatever the weather, so come prepared! 

Directed by Kate Nelson 
Designed by Sarah Paulley 
Performed by Gowan Calder and Nicola Jo Cully
