Funeral Flowers at The Roundhouse

Funeral Flowers, written and performed by Emma Dennis-Edwards and directed by Jessica Edwards returns, this time to The Roundhouse. 

The play tells the story of Angelique, 17, who dreams of being a florist. Part poetry, part play; we are taken on a journey of young girl with her mum in prison left to navigate the care system and the recurring threat from her boyfriend's gang. The show has been co-produced by Ann Akin and her company Harts Theatre Company.
