This 2018 Fringe First award winning play tells the story of Angelique, 17, who dreams of being a florist. Part poetry, part play; this immersive, promenade piece takes its audiences on a journey with Angelique, as she navigates the care system and threats from her boyfriend's gang while her mum is in prison.

First inspired by the story of Gina Moffatt, a Tottenham-based entrepreneur who began her journey into floristry while incarcerated, this play returned to London in 2019 for a run at The Bunker, The Bernie Grant Arts Centre and the Free Word Centre in Spring 2019.
