The Wildflower Book is a charming play, based on the true story of Agnes Fitzgibbon, a widowed daughter of Suzanna Moody, famous author of Roughing it in the Bush.

Agnes was a painter of Wildflowers, seeking to publish a book of her illustrations and descriptions. Louise Phillips has taken some well researched historical characters, and included them in this play with some fascinating historical anecdotes, as well as a couple of love stories, trials of family life in the mid 19th century, and allusions to the misogyny of the era.

Great 19th century costumes and set to be seen as well.

The Wildflower Book runs May 25 to June 3rd at the Sechelt Seniors Activity Centre, and then June 15, 16, 17 at the Heritage Playhouse, produced by Driftwood Players.

www.thewildflowerbook.ca has ticketing information for the Sechelt performances and the poster has the Gibsons information.
