Obie Award-winning playwright Adam Bock returns to Chicago with this witty love letter to the theatre. The gay couple that runs The Flowers Acting Troupe is as star-crossed as the forty-year-old actors they have playing Romeo and Juliet. For one of them, the world has become too small.

The Flowers headlines About Face Theatre's XYZ Festival of New Works, which runs from September 21 - November 7.
