The Boy Who Grew Flowers

Tickets £4.00 all

Rink comes from an eccentric family with eccentric qualities but Rink is the most unusual of them all.  Whenever the moon is full, beautiful flowers sprout all over his body.  Ashamed of his floral secret, at school, Rink keeps to himself until one day a new girl arrives, Angelina, who has one leg shorter than the other and loves to dance.

The announcement of a school dance inspires Rink to create a beautiful and unusual gift for Angelina, securing their friendship.

The Boy Who Grew Flowers, written by Jen Wojtowicz, has been adapted by Kazzum into a magical play that encourages children to appreciate difference and begin to understand disability.  Directed by Daryl Beeton, who is himself disabled, this is a lushly visual display of object theatre and live music combined with the use of humour and metaphor.  Celebrating the beauty of our uniqueness this story gives reassurance to anyone who’s ever felt out of place.

Suitable for ages 4 – 8 years.

Running time approximately 45 minutes.
