Can you escape the cycle you’ve been bound by your whole life?

Emma Dennis-Edward‘s multi award-winning play tells the story of seventeen-year-old Angelique, who’s forced to navigate the care system after her mum’s imprisonment. Part poetry, part play, Funeral Flowers is a ‘funny, fearless and heart-breaking’ (Lyn Gardner, The Stage) show about a young woman who dreams of being a florist.

Inspired by the remarkable story of Tottenham community leader and businesswoman Gina Moffatt, who created her own floristry business whilst incarcerated at HMP Holloway.

Winner of the Filipa Bragança Award for Best Solo Performance 2018. Winner of a Scotsman Fringe First Award 2018.
