Frustrated with the tedium of suburbia, mummy’s boy Dennis is drawn to Borstal boy Jeffry in a camaraderie that veers into volatile and unarticulated eroticism. Deftly depicting the frustrations of 1960s living, Over Gardens Out is a finely tuned sketch of friendship and family life.

Over Gardens Out by Peter Gill was first performed in the Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre, London, on 5 August 1968.
