The Flowers Are Perfect in the Garden
One in a trilogy of plays by Lucy Caldwell about the ways in which families say goodbye to loved ones. A husband and father reconnects with his family and says a happy goodbye.
In The Flowers Are Perfect in The Garden by Lucy Caldwell, a man spends his final days in a hospice surrounded by his wife and once estranged children, who have travelled far and wide to be by his bedside at this time. It is full of laughter and tears as memories often are and it is a chance for them to re-connect and re-charge the loving bond that had been lost for a time. They are able to come together as a family and as a result in the death of their father there is a birth of a family once more.
