The Plastic Garden shows us a new world with no suffering and only the body’s activities to sustain us: a farcical parallel to modern life. When Mike falls in love, he doesn’t know how to handle his emotions. Can the guru Mume Bibstripe save the day and put Mike back in to the real world and save him from his fall from this crazy Eden?
Barnaby Haslam started life in rural Northumberland, England, and moved, age ten, to the county of Essex, where he remains. During a holiday to India after a year studying Fine Art after school, he began a series of creative projects which sustain him today. A big interest in comedy, Fine Art, Romanticism and cinema led him to create much work, including his novella The Plastic Garden. He studied Mime in London for a year and now lives alone with his paintings, poems and prints.
