Carrying on their season’s tradition of transformation, Serenbe Playhouse is breathing new life into the story with their debut of Playwright Rachel Teagle’s interpretation of the tale. "As a kid, I read Frances Hodgson Burnett's story until the book fell apart in my hands. I spent a lot of time looking for secret doors under the ivy in the backyard,” Rachel says. “Mary's journey out of bitter isolation into belonging really resonates; no matter how old we are, there's still a lonely lost child inside us somewhere. Above all, this story offers hope - that people can change, that love can bloom, and that spring will come again.""
