flowers on stage

This week we begin a summer series on the blog about flowers on stage. At the Ashden Directory we have considered various ways in which mammals have been presented and interpreted on stage (from whales to wolves). In these posts we want to consider the dramatic impact of flowers.

We have invited contributions from a playwright, a performer, a designer and two academics, who have each chosen one play and one flower. The flowers are the poppy, the lotus, the daffodil, the lungwort, the kudzu plant and a fictional plant in Susan Glaspell's play The Verge called 'Breath of Life'. The first of these posts - about the poppies in Under Glass - appears tomorrow.
