The Plotters of Cabbage Patch Corner is a musical play for child audiences. The insects live in a busy world in the garden. Their existence, however, is always overshadowed by the humans – the Big Ones. Infuriated by constant “spraying” the unattractive Slug, Greenfly and Maggot call for rebellion, strikes, ruination of the garden. The others, the ‘pretty’ insects – Red Admiral, Ladybird and Bumble Bee – oppose this and war is declared. Glow Worm and Ant reluctantly become involved.
Fortune swings one way and the other in a series of bitter campaigns. The garden goes to ruin and the Big Ones decide to build a garage on it. This brings the insects to their senses. They combine to restore the garden to its original beauty and thus preserve their home.
