"I brought you flowers," he said sheepishly; she said joyfully; he said with congratulations; she said mournfully; we said for all the myriad reasons we bring one and other flowers. Spring 4th Productions returns to Fertile Ground with the latest of their original works, The Flower Cart, in a funny, earnest and painful exploration of the varied moments - from the momentous, to the minute - that we mark with flowers. Playwrighting/acting team Tobin Gollihar and Ian Sieren will bring to the stage a year in the life of the Father and Son owners of The Flower Cart. The year is 1983, and the customers' celebrations of new lives, and new lives together, are starting to feel overshadowed by the dread of lives torn asunder. As is their signature, Gollihar and Sieren find levity in our darkest moments and hope in the humanity of their characters.
part of Fertile Ground, a city-wide festival of new works.
