Allotment by Jules Horne


Award-winning show comes to Falmouth and Gyllyngdune Gardens as part of the brand new SPLASH festival.

The Award winning show “Allotment” comes to Falmouth during the new September “Splash” Festival for two performances at Gyllyngdune Gardens.  

Presented by Carn to Cove, Cornwall’s rural touring performing arts scheme, this theatre show celebrates the gardening allotment life. 

All are welcome but gardeners (adults and children), producers & allotmenteers are invited to bring their harvest produce to show. 

Please call 01209 313200 if you are a trader and wish to book a trestle table or space. There will be prizes for the weirdest looking vegetable, the biggest Marrow prize and coolest scarecrow!

About the show...

ALLOTMENT follows the complex and quirky relationship between sisters Dora and Maddy as they live out the seasons on their allotment, playing out their rivalries among the plants, and when the unexpected rocks their uneasy balance, it’s time to do something radical…

The dark comedy is also a celebration of gardening, with the actresses digging, planting and performing on top of a shed.

With changeable weather constantly shifting the nature of the allotment, 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!
