Gillian Plowman's The Allotment' concerns four women serving community punishment orders who are growing vegetables for a soup kitchen. These four characters of various ages are on the edge of mainstream society. Although the problems they face are hard and genuine, there is a warm hearted humour, with comedy never being at the expense of the characters.We are introduced to four women working on the allotment:
Marcie has been convicted of dangerous driving.
Norah is a serial shoplifter who hasn't recovered from the death of her daughter over 20 years ago.
Belle is a PA convicted of blackmailing her boss.
Lorna is an actress covicted of criminal damage to a theatre.
Daisy is the new probation officer, brimming with ideas for women's rehabilitation. This is her first day on the job.
Presented as one of three plays at the MADF One Act Drama Festival where is won three awards including Best Play.
