A Rehearsed Staged Play Reading
Written and Directed by John Francis Harries
Performed by Siobhan Ashe McGovern
After a series of successful performances in Los Angeles, Siobhan Ashe McGovern revisits the powerful play Land Of Flowers written and directed Welsh-born actor John Francis Harries. The performance is a staged reading and will appear at Small World Theatre, Cardigan on Saturday 25 November 7.30pm.
The play is set in Florida during the struggles of WW2 and the stirrings of social change. This moving one woman show features Charlotte, a politician’s wife who faces personal tragedy and takes a painful journey to a new understanding of herself and of the Deep South. Siobhan delivers a powerful performance sweeping from poignant comedy to heart-wrenching verse and even surprises the audience with some song and dance numbers.
“John Francis Harries’ script by turns lyrical and visceral and Siobhan Mc Govern commands the stage, breathing life into a character you’re not likely to forget.” Michael Gerber. Writer
“THE LAND OF FLOWERS” is a dark, powerful and engrossing elegy that tackles all the complex and conflicting aspects of racism, grief and nationalism and leaves you thinking and talking about them, long after the final curtain!” JIM PIDDOCK – Producer/Writer/Co-Writer
Donations are welcome on the door on the nights of the performance.
