Zoe awakes on a couch in a strange room. Soon, familiar people begin to flood unexpectedly into the room and Zoe finds herself on a propulsive and moving journey through the most significant and heartbreaking events of her young life. A Scent of Flowers is an epic and wildly inventive tale, immense in it’s scope and searing in it’s intimacy. Written by James Saunders in 1965, this moving masterpiece is virtually unknown inside the United States. BackStage Theatre Company is thrilled to bring this remarkable story to Chicago audiences for the very first time.
