When Bridget and Tom return to Bridget’s hometown for her mother’s funeral, Bridget learns that she has inherited the house and vegetable garden. However, only once she reconciles her deep-seated fears about family and identity will the garden let her escape. It is a fantastical and mystical element, and comes to represent the Mother, both biological and Earth. The piece explores the tensions between childhood home and adult home, and the question of where we fit in once we’ve grown up. The show also explores LGBTQ issues, with Bridget’s struggle stemming from a discomfort in her own skin.
