ARDENT THEATRE COMPANY
AND JERMYN STREET THEATRE

23 Sept - 25 Oct 2014
Jermyn Street Theatre, London

1934, Bedford Square, London. In their beautiful and tasteful home Naomi and Lewis Jacklin live a contented, if unromantic, life of luxury. But when her disapproving sister Mercia arrives unexpectedly one evening with some of Naomi's old belongings, memories of the past, long since forgotten, flicker to life: a vicarage in Sussex in October 1914, and a final dinner before the men leave for war.

Set during and after the First World War, John van Druten's Flowers of the Forest is an enthralling, heart-wrenching story of love, memory and devastating loss by one of the most acclaimed playwrights of the 1930s.
