Play written by Edward Crosby Wells. Copyright 1990, 2009 Edward Crosby Wells, 2009 Chicago production, Complete video.

"[Flowers Out Of Season] throws together sex, religion and suicide in a fresh, original and transcendent way . . . I think I have just seen the future of American Theatre.”
—Michael Bourne, Circle Repertory Company

“Spiritually barren lives given meaning by fundamentalist religion. Comfortable lifestyles devoid of passion. And the finality of the gun. All reflect what happened to American values . . . and they form the subject of Edward Crosby Wells’ challenging new play, Flowers out of Season . . . one of the best things this theatre [Changing Scene, Denver] has done.”
—Jeff Bradley, Denver Post

“Powerful stuff . . . riveting . . . thought-provoking . . . Flowers Out of Season is a production that promises revelations regarding working rural poverty, American health care, and religion as well as a healthy dose of dangerous eroticism . . . the show delivers on all of these promises – brilliantly at times . . .”
—Randy Hardwick, THE CHICAGO CRITIC

“Edward Crosby Wells' play hails from the Nick Cave School of magic realism: set in the same sort of vaguely southwestern, vaguely antediluvian, lightning-driven flood plain of the mind, it has a Murder Ballads-style hero who may literally be the devil in disguise. The expressionism and outright fantasy of Wells' audacious, borderline supernatural scenario are well matched by director Madrid St. Angelo's stylized, sensual staging . . .”
—Brian Nemtusak, Chicago Reader

“Something significant . . . be advised that this is the show that will soon make the journey worth the effort.”
— Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times

THIS PLAY IS EXCLUSIVELY HANDLED BY STAGEPLAYS AND LEASED THROUGH STAGEPLAYS

Hi Edd

Just a quick note to say Jane and I watched Flowers Out of Season last night

Very powerful and very intense, even via the "cold" medium of television - it must have been quite shattering in the intimacy of the theatre

Your play also prompted a conversation about the differences and nature of American drama in contrast to Brit drama, namely the passion of (say) Williams, Albee and Shepard in relation to the relative restraint of (say) Coward, Stoppard and Hare

Anyway, thanks again for such a rare experience
