New York City
A 15-year old struggles with her newfound beauty in the midst of a culture that values plastic surgery, the very thin and the very young.
The New York City premiere of Suzanne Bradbeer’s Full Bloom is directed by Linda Ames Key. The play tells the story of Phoebe, a teenaged New Yorker, trying to come to terms with a culture that seems to care more about how a woman looks than about what she thinks or can do. Her father has recently left her mother for a younger woman. Their attractive, thirty-something neighbor is contemplating plastic surgery to better compete for acting jobs, and a young boy, who shares Phoebe’s interests, just wants to be her friend. Amidst these mixed messages Phoebe tries to make sense of the not always welcome attention of her blossoming body. The articulate and intelligent characters in this surprisingly funny play take the audience on a subtle, devastating and ultimately hopeful journey through a transformative period in Phoebe’s life.
