Womanhood is not always a piece of cake.
Bun in the oven? The 'timer' ticking? Something to do with yeast?
In a bakery, two women create for every seemingly important milestone in a woman's life: weddings, christenings and (hen-do special order) giant phallic cookies all pass through the shop reminding them constantly of what they have escaped or indeed are seen to be missing out on.
The ‘spiritual sequel’ to Flowers (2017); Flours is an hilariously riotous display of expectation, judgement, compassion, and bakeries…
An original piece, featuring gameplay, live music and a really cool bit with a rolling pin.
Presented by Big Loop Theatre Company
Written and performed by Allie Downing and Kitty Hughes
Directed by Duncan Hallis
Critical acclaim for Flowers (2017):
“This is silliness in the service of an ambitious vision; subtly serious fun.”
British Theatre Guide
“This heartening show makes you laugh out loud, hold your breath and wish you were as clever as the writers.” ★★★★★ Buzz Magazine
“Amusing, clever and extremely heartbreaking. This play portrays a pretty sinister story, yet at the centre of their story lies a great and solid heart.” Kelly Allen Writer
