There's something about Bouquet

June 28 - August 2
Opens: Saturday, June 28th 7-10pm

Brighten is a limp, faint and plucked flower from Bedroom. Its life is going nowhere until it meets Bouquet Bouquet, a dry, scentful thing with a passion for shadows. Brighten takes an instant liking to Bouquet and the cloudy and fallen ways it learnt during its years in Vase. When a wilt tries to fall Brighten, Bouquet springs to the rescue. Brighten begins to notice that Bouquet is rather prepped at heart. The pressures of Bouquet's position as a bud leave it blind to Brighten's affections and Brighten takes up light to try and distract itself. Finally, when Rustle Echo death death threatens to come between them, bouquet has to act fast. But will they ever find the death love that they deserve?
