Ed Robson’s The Gardener sets off on tour on 1st March, and features BAA’s Crawford Logan.
One of the hit shows of the Edinburgh Fringe, The Gardener is an intimate portrait of all the minor triumphs and major tribulations of amateur gardening, and of a life-time spent in love.
Frank’s always been a keen gardener but lately he hasn’t been getting out quite as much as he’d like, especially not since his wife passed away.
After much deliberation he’s decided it’s time to sell up and move into Pine Grove Villas – his local retirement home. It’s a very nice place, with very nice people, but there’s still that one thing that Frank really misses. So he’s started his very own gardening group to share some hints and tips from a life-time spent in the garden, and perhaps one or two more personal tales along the way.
The Gardener kicks off its tour at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh on 1st March, then visits thirteen venues across Scotland:
The Wizard of Oz – Pitlochry Festival Theatre
The first of our clients’ festive projects this year is Crawford Logan‘s run as the eponymous Wizard in The Wizard of Oz at Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
Follow The Yellow Brick Road to picturesque Pitlochry this Christmas and experience the most magical musical of them all.
Based on the classic 1939 MGM film starring Judy Garland, join Dorothy (and Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Toto too!) on her journey from a farm in Kansas, to the magical Emerald City, in the wonderful land of Oz. Watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys, fields of poppies and tornados along the way!
Alongside all the familiar Pitlochry trademarks (a stellar cast, large live band, stunning costumes and superbly crafted sets), expect amazing acrobatics and aerial artistry!
Runs from 23 Nov – 23 Dec.

Directed by Andy Arnold, Enda Walsh’s Ballyturk opens at the Tron Theatre on 4th October, featuring Brennan Artists Wendy Seager, Simon Donaldson, Joyce Falconer and Crawford Logan.
Ballyturk is Enda Walsh’s moving meditation on the brevity of our existence – a mundane village with echoes of Dylan Thomas’s Llareggub in Under Milk Wood, viewed through a Truman Show style filter of confined artificiality.
Explosions both literal and imagined, music and exhilarating physical comedy punctuate beautifully poetic renderings of life in the type of small town we have all visited, and, more likely, lived in. The result is exuberant, surreal, funny and gut-wrenchingly sad.

Frank’s getting on a bit. He’s been having trouble looking after himself lately, missing meals and not getting out much… not since his wife passed away. So, reluctantly, he’s agreed to go into a retirement home. It’s a really nice place, with really nice people, but Frank misses working outside in the garden… A deeply intimate portrait of love, life-partner loss and all the joys, minor triumphs and major tribulations of amateur gardening.
‘Wonderment… revealed with a delicate shudder. Brilliant.’ (Stage on Viewless).
Crawford Logan stars in The Gardener at Summerhall from the 2nd – 27th August. Tickets can be bought from the Edinburgh Fringe website.The Gardener
Crawford Logan plays Frank in The Gardener directed by Tony Cownie and designed by Ed Robson
Frank’s been having a bit of trouble looking after himself lately. He’s been missing his meals and maybe not getting out quite as much as he knows he should. So he’s now gone into a retirement home. It’s a nice place, with nice people, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it…but Frank misses his Garden and all the joy that sharing a life with nature, and with his wife, had once brought him.
The Gardener is an intimate portrait of a lifetime spent in love with the beauty and simplicity of nature and of the challenges we all meet as we age and face the last great question at the closure of our own life-story.
The Gardner runs from Wednesday 29 March to Saturday 1 April
