Sunflowers and Sheds: children's shed theatre

Sunflowers and Sheds is a touring show about what The Stage calls a "simple but spellbinding tale of friendship and growth born out of loneliness and displacement" aimed at children over four. Written and directed by Dot Wood and Gilly Baskeyfield from M6 Theatre Company, it's set on two adjacent allotments and Joss Matzen's set includes a rather attractive shed (plus vegetables and chicken coop). The show has been all over (London, Glasgow, etc). Here's what it's all about:
On the allotments down by the railway, Frank's peaceful routine is turned upside down by the arrival of lively Isabella and her chickens on the neighbouring plot. Through the changing seasons the seeds of friendship grow side by side with the raspberries, runner beans, memories and dreams.
