I know a lot of kids who’ve endured civil wars and famines. These kids are wise. Aware. They’re searching for a little beauty in the world. Because life without beauty is unbearable.
– Concord Floral by Jordan Tannahill
The Decameron meets I Know What You Did Last Summer in a suburban thriller where ten teenagers flee a plague of their own making. The setting is an abandoned greenhouse and a refuge for neighbourhood kids. A place all to themselves in which to dream, dare, and come of age. But hidden there is a secret no one wants to confront, and when two friends stumble upon it they set off an unstoppable chain of events, from shadows in parking lots to phone calls from the grave. Concord Floral was presented by the Douglas College Theatre Department from November 3rd to 10th, 2017.
