Everything in the Garden (1968)
by Giles Cooper
Directed by Victor Shaw
Illustrating the agelessness of avarice, Giles Cooper, in this modern play, writes of the power of greed to overcome moral scruples.
In "Everything in the Garden", we see a middle class suburban family who are so respectable that they, and their friends, could be classed as moral snobs. Like most people who live within a tight cocoon of convention, they are bigoted and intolerant of those they consider beyond the pale.
Yet.......when the chance to make a lot of money, even they will sacrifice their principles - provided they still remain outwardly moral!
