‘Kick In The Head’ Theatre Productions Present




by Alfred Shaughnessy


Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips” (The Guardian), Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants. This charming one man play has entranced audiences around the country, and now comes to the Torch Theatre this July!


An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The evening blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century.



"Giles Shenton is superb...completely captivating, he has the audience's attentions and imaginations throughout" - The Reviews Hub


"Wonderful production" - Surrey Advertiser


"Not to be missed" - BBC Radio Kent



As Old Herbaceous, renowned actor Giles Shenton truly lives the part of the legendary Head Gardener, Herbert Pinnegar, inviting audiences to become a part of a private chat from a bygone, comforting age.


Old Herbaceous is sure to keep you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, and will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.


As Reviews Hub writes, ‘A delightful tale, beautifully told, Old herbaceous is a treat to watch and not just for garden lovers.’

Audiences can experience this charming and captivating play, when Kick In The Head Theatre Productions bring Old Herbaceous to the Torch Theatre, Wednesday 4 July, 7.30pm.
