Bumps, Aucio CD directed by Bella D'Arcy Reed


A play by Sheila Dewey

This is a play about Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens by Sheila Dewey Audio CD starring Graham Seed and Annette Badland.

A chance meeting at a tea party in Surrey, England, in 1889 led to one of the most affectionate, long-lasting, extraordinary garden partnerships of the 20th century.

Gertrude Jekyll, already a successful plantswoman, interior designer, painter, silversmith and embroiderer in her own right, met a young man, Edwin Lutyens, who had just left the office of architect Ernest George after one year to start his own practice. He was all of 19 years old. Miss Jekyll, twenty-five years his senior, not only commissioned her own house from him but introduced him to clients. She was to become his mentor, his design partner and his lifelong friend.

BUMPS was his special name for her. Even when Lutyens spread his wings as an architect, designing all over the world, he still commissioned planting plans from her, including those for the War Graves after World War I. The action of the play takes place between 1889 and 1917
