My Soulmate’s Husband’s Soulmate –  A new play by Gina Thorley

No one really believes in soulmates, do they? Johan didn’t. That is until the day he, and most of the world’s population, woke up knowing exactly where to find theirs.

Erin and Adrian are happily married when Johan arrives on their doorstep. He is Erin’s soulmate. Neither Adrian or Erin know quite what to do with him.

The three depart on a road trip to find Adrian’s soulmate – the trouble is: he’s not sure where to start.

An upbeat but bittersweet black comedy about fate, romance, empathy and the ways we’re taught to think about love.

Suitable for age 15+

Latest Covid guidance

While we are grateful that we can begin to operate in a more normal way, we are mindful that throughout the pandemic we have said that we will always put the wellbeing of our community first. We will continue to do so and we have decided, therefore, that for the time being we should keep some distancing practices in place.

In line with Government regulations introduced on the 10th December 2021 we ask that you continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt) when visiting the Goods Shed – this can be removed for the purposes of eating and drinking only – and to be conscious of social distancing in general. This will be harder for us financially but we think it is the right thing to do. We are open (performances, café and for other groups) as we have been whenever possible in this challenging period. We hope you understand, and that we can relax more fully in a couple of months.

Your support of us throughout this period has been humbling and we will do all we can to make your visits to the Goods Shed and café both comfortable and exciting.

It is always best to check the website before leaving for your garden visit with The National Garden Scheme.
