Floral Icon Hits West End

west end constance spryConstance Spry, iconic floral designer of the 1930’s, is taking centre stage in London’s West End this September.

Constance ran a successful business as the florist of choice for the highest society of the decade, designing floral displays for royal weddings as well as the Queen’s coronation. She undoubtedly played a leading role in society of the time, but whilst her career blossomed, behind her respected image lay a very different story; one of marital discord, affairs and heartache.

The Arts Theatre in London will be portraying the life of the pioneering florist in Anton Burge’s latest work, Storm in a Flower Vase. The play is based on Sue Shephard’s book, The Surprising Life of Constance Spry.

Season: Friday 20th September – Saturday 12th October 2013

Also on offer is a floral day package including a day workshop run by award winning florist Mig Kimpton.
