A play by Emma Dennis-Edwards


Seventeen-year-old Angelique dreams of being a florist as a refuge from a complicated upbringing. Peppered with stunning poetic prose, this Fringe First award-winning immersive piece recounts the powerful journey of a young woman left to navigate her way into adulthood through the care system and the recurring threat from her boyfriend’s gang.

The performance will feature a post-show discussion in the form of an interactive floristry masterclass, geared towards young people but open to all. This will be led by the social enterprise Bread & Roses, which helps refugee and migrant women on their pathway to employment.

This play is presented by Harts Theatre Company and Power Play, a project highlighting systemic gender inequality in theatre through immersive art and data-driven activism.

Emma Dennis-Edwards is Associate Artist at Pentabus theatre. Her work has been performed at The Tricycle, Arcola, Royal Court and Oval House.
