About This Show

Orchidelirium by Canadian playwright, Dave Carley, has its United States Premiere as the final production of Personal Space Theatrics’ Season of Obsession. Take the journey across two centuries and explore the one flower that can cause a fever in the brains of humans; a desire to possess, to create and to control so strong that it has been declared a medical condition. That flower is the orchid and the lovesickness it creates is known as ‘orchidelirium’. This piece is a hothouse hybrid of fact and fiction, research and hypothesis, scent and sex that focuses on four people in two different centuries whose lives collide because of this shared obsession. By turns hysterical and hearbreaking, this performance cautions us of the calamities that can come with unrequited love.

This is an Actor’s Equity Approved Showcase.
