EDISON THEATRE COMPANY
2016 Fall Production: Flowers for Algernon
by David Rogers
based on the story by Daniel Keyes
Flowers for Algernon is about a 32-year old developmentally disabled man, Charlie Gordon, who gets the chance to have an operation that increases his mental capabilities. This is a very touching play that is well worth seeing. You will be shocked, torn, and challenged between the characters in the play. You will be able to see the artistic side of drama and how certain things impact the tone and feeling of a scene. You will be able to see and feel the pain and frustrations some of the characters carry throughout the play. We expect you to walk out with an attachment to some of the characters. It will give you a thoughtful consideration of the people who have these disabilities and how they might think or feel in situations that Charlie faces in the play. It will change your perspective on people with these disabilities. This is a play you will not forget, so come out to see the cast perform Flowers for Algernon.
If you have any questions, or want to learn more about the play, please contact Mrs. Addison at 703-924-8014, or visit edisondrama.com for more information.
