“Flowers Aren’t Enough” is a monologue that tells the story of Michal, a young woman from an upper-middle-class family who finds herself in an abusive relationship. Michal describes how her partner gradually narrows her world isolating her from her surroundings. We see her denial; her guilt and how social conditionings intensify her shame and despair. We witness Michal sinking into darkness and then watch how she takes charge of her life, and rediscovers herself. The monologue is woven from true stories and actual incidents graciously shared by women willing to talk about their all too common experiences.

Duration of the play is 55 minutes; Light reception to follow
