Publisher's Summary

Harriet Walter and Beryl Reid star in this full-cast adaptation of the much-loved children's classic.

When spoilt young orphan Mary Lennox is brought back from India to live in her uncle's house on the Yorkshire Moors, she finds the blunt ways of the staff at Misselthwaite Manor an unpleasant shock. Bored and miserable, it seems as though life in England will be awful. But Misselthwaite has hidden delights, and when Mary begins to discover them, nothing is the same again. First there is the secret garden - and with it comes a boy who knows all the wonders of the country. He can even talk to the birds! Then, as the old house gives up its biggest secret, Mary forms a magical friendship.

Frances Hodgson Burnett's charming story is played out with all the freshness and warmth of the original novel in this BBC Radio full-cast dramatization.

Performance of a lifetime

Instead of hearing one person read the book you can hear the entire cast act out
the play with the perfect amount of sound effects to add mystery behind The Secret Garden
