Bring Botanic Garden into Your Space

Originally directed by Academy Award winner, Olympia Dukakis, Botanic Garden has captured the hearts and minds of audiences throughout the United States. Starring award winning actors Carmen Roman and James Leaming, Botanic Garden is a funny, poignant drama; both a fresh  engaging portrait of the intricacies of a long-term relationship and an exploration of what it really means to move on.

LIMITED ENGAGEMENT

Kate and Jake were married for more than 25 years. Now, recently widowed, Kate faces the daunting prospect of dating for the first time in decades.  Kate’s memories of her marriage--some laughter and passion-filled, others frustration-ridden--surround her as she reevaluates her choices in this new chapter in her life. Botanic Garden offers a funny and refreshingly unsentimental look at loss, questioning our collective belief that moving forward is the best medicine.

TOUCHING

 

 

HISTORY

The two-hander Botanic Garden premiered in February 2008 at the Victory Garden Theater. The highly acclaimed production was directed by Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis. After a successful seven week run, it transferred to the Piccolo Theater for a five week run.

In January and February of 2016  Botanic Garden toured nationally for five weeks, including on site performances at senior living communities in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.

 

MEMORABLE

“Botanic Garden was the perfect play for Friendship Village. The acting was incredible! The themes of loss, letting go and moving on really resonated with our residents. The before and after interactions with the actors was an added bonus.  I wish there were more plays as perfectly suited to the older adult as this one was”.
