Theatre Performance at Salop Drive Market Garden

The Cast of "Losing The Plot"LOSING THE PLOT - A Tale of Love, Life and Allotments

Losing the Plot is a story of love – love between people and the land, love between people and people, and love between people and their giant vegetables.

One of two new shows which Mikron Theatre Company will tour in 2012, Losing the Plot will be on at Salop Drive Market Garden, Oldbury on Tuesday 31st July at 7.30pm.

The show, written by Deborah McAndrew tells the stories of the gardeners of Thistledale Allotments, a rag-bag bunch of diggers and dreamers. Strong personalities frequently clash over the best treatment for mealy bugs, and the annual ‘Heaviest and Longest’ competition is always a time when old feuds and new flirtations threaten to undermine the fragile peace.

Then Harvey from the Council pays a visit and the gardeners realise that they must pull together, or forfeit their precious plot forever. But can they agree on a strategy? How will they convince Harvey of the vital role allotments have played in the life of the nation for centuries? What will they do when things inevitably get out of hand?

Losing the Plot will be performed at Salop Drive Market Garden, Salop Drive, Oldbury, B68 9AQ on Tuesday 31st July at 7.30pm.

There is no need to book tickets for this show, as a pay-what-you-will collection will be taken after the performance. Bring your own chairs and picnic.
