The Little Flower of East Orange, first produced at New York's Public Theater in the spring of 2008, is an unconventional family drama centering around Therese Marie and her anxious, angry children. The events of the play unfold mostly in Therese Marie's hospital room, where she very well could be on her death bed. She contends with visits from a patronizing doctor, a friendly police detective, and an assortment of apparitions, most notably the ghost of her father. She also fights to maintain her dignity as her son Danny, recently out of rehab, insists on making her confront the ugly secrets of her past.
