The Flower Debt 1000 x 1000.png

The Flower Debt is a play that is part dream, part nightmare, suffused with lively characters, poetic language, and rich choreography as inspired by the myth of Persephone and Hades. 

As Persephone grapples with her autonomy as the new queen of an ever-changing domain, Hades takes progressively radical measures to stave off the collapse of his entire realm. From amidst this turmoil, Persephone must discover the deep and magical keys to her liberation.
