The Chalk Garden is a sometimes poignant, often witty, and always intriguing story of human growth and nurturing that won critical acclaim in the early 60's, including a Tony award in 1964. It has proven its timeless appeal throughout the decades since.

The story shares the tale of how a "caring English Nanny bridges gap between Matriarch and precocious teen". When an eccentric gentle-woman interviews for a companion for her granddaughter, with no intentions of hiring anybody, a strange woman applies whose mysterious past intrigues the granddaughter.

"A tantalizing, fascinating and stimulating piece of theatre." • New York Daily News

"A very fresh and personal kind of play with wit, literacy, and an almost unearthly integrity." • New York Herald Tribune
