THE THORNS OF FLOWER CHILDREN

by Michael McGovern

Directed by Jeff Paul

A Sundays@Six Series Reading in The Jewel Box Theater

It’s another “Big Chill”, this time 30 years later as a gathering of friends in their 60’s, with a young millennial in their midst, experience an evening of strong emotions, unbridled joys and deep longings.

What these “aging hippies” have gone through in life brings about a multitude of revelations for themselves as well as their new young friend. Over the course of a long night each character accepts the “thorns” in their lives as they begin a journey toward the perfect way to age to perfection.

A poignant, and often humorous celebration of growing old and all the wonders and mysteries that go with it.
