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.

“My five year old son discusses it with me regularly!” Rebecca Johnson (Head of Arts – Blackburn)
