Runtime: 1h 10m
An ageing Judith faces early-onset Alzheimer’s and the death of her husband John. Her family insists that she moves into a care home but she refuses to abandon her house. As she argues with her children, her past and present become blurred. Memories come alive and she sees herself as a young wife and mother, surrounded by John and by her best friend and then lover Georgia. Built around two colliding timelines, ‘Des Fleurs’ is an intricate play about choice, queerness and indentity. Written by French playwright Gabrielle Silvestre and produced by up-and-coming Fury Entertainment, a production company dedicated to urgent, diverse, furious story-telling. Warning: Occasional strong language. Mentions of Alzheimer’s and dementia, grief, loss of a loved one.
