Don’t Send Flowers by Emily Garside (Rehearsed reading)

Where: The Drayton Arms

When: 1.30pm Friday 15th November 2019

Description: Following a successful run in Cardiff, Wolverhampton and Oldham this year, Emily Garside is working with a new team to bring Don’t Send Flowers to London in 2020.

Director Adam Sabbatti and Emily would like to invite LPW members to this reading to gather feedback on their reworked version of the play ahead of an anticipated full production in 2020.

Mateo Oxley, Julia Kellet and Greg Smith will be reading the play and would  like to invite you to a post-show discussion and feedback session in the bar of the Drayton Arms.

Described as ‘an insightful and sensitive look at the subject of death, cancer and love’ (Buzz Magazine)

Grace is in therapy because her Father is dying and she’s not handling it very well. John is in therapy because he’s dying, and also not handling it too well. Louis is in therapy because his work told him he has to be, and because his brother is dying. None of them want to talk to a stranger about the fact this doesn’t make them happy. So, they strike up a friendship with each other. Largely dysfunctional from the outside, it turns out to be exactly what they all need.

Please RSVP as space is limited to EmilyMGarside@gmail.com
