Compost Mentis

Time: 10:00 - End time to be confirmed
Location: Lingfield Point

Something is stirring in the garden.

Compost Mentis features a large compost heap, set in a small allotment, and the Gardener who looks after it. Their relationship begins to break down when he discovers that the compost heap has developed a life of its own, and harbours thoughts fermenting within. Live action, puppet, mechanical and musical interventions ensure that the audience, like the Gardener, are led up the garden path.
