Each Spring Mrs Wentworth-Brewster’s dowdy rooms are Spring-cleaned of their previous occupants. Its dust remains, only its occupants disappear along with their belongings in the vegetable patch.


Three new young and fresh female students arrive to seek out their own accomplishments, ready in time to start University next year. They seek inspiration, love and self esteem, meaning in their lives, whilst Mrs Wentworth-Brewster seeks redemption.


Mrs Wentworth-Brewster attends to her vegetable patch, along with her imaginary friend, Marjorie believing the talents from the buried girls make their way into the vegetables she consumes, absorbing their talents.


First produced in the 2007 Play In A Day by Mitcham Theatre Group Inc.
