Funeral Flowers

This 2018 multi and Fringe First award winning play explores trauma, vulnerability and the impulse to survive.  It witnesses the impact of digitally-recorded traumatic events on the life of a teenager growing up in care. Its story was inspired by the real experiences of one woman parted from her children when incarcerated in Holloway Prison. Part poetry, part play in this immersive performance piece  audiences were physically taken on a journey, walking through Angelique's domestic space as her lyrical words bring us into the world her dreams and desires.
