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.
