"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 innovative theater has done."
—Jeff Bradley, Denver Post
A young couple, Buck and Dawn, in Southern New Mexico have fallen on hard times. They are America’s working poor—lost in a faltering social and healthcare system. We meet them early one morning on the day that will change their lives forever. Their conversation reveals the political, religious and social underpinnings of the disenfranchised in America. Later that same day Buck meets Daisy, a middle-aged woman twice his age. They come together for a steamy, dangerous and frightening afternoon encounter. The tension erupts into the unleashing of Nature's fury, perhaps brought about through the power of magic. Sensuous and seductive, the plot’s twists and turns lead to a shattering conclusion.
* This play contains violence, sexual themes and language.
"In a dusty town in New Mexico salvation is a stranger."
