The Flower Thief

The African American experience is not represented solely by one voice or one style. THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL is a platform for talented early-career playwrights of African-American descent to explore new voices, styles and challenging new directions for 21st century performing arts, and move beyond common ideas of what is possible in black theater. THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL 2011 will feature five staged readings, six ten-minute plays, and a panel discussion on Diversity in Contemporary Theatre.
The Flower Thief is about a young man named Clark and the exploration of his grief after he loses his twin brother in a drowning accident. Jumping through time and mind, we also see Clark through the lens of his troubled relationship with a young woman named Angela.
