The Word Players salute spring with a performance of flower poems by various authors. The collection of poems is a Victorian analysis of flowers, taken from the 1963 reissue of the book The Illustrated Language of Flowers, originally compiled by Mrs. Anna Christian Burke in 1856. The poems relate to the conception that people have of flowers, and what flowers mean to people. Produced for WBAI's Mind's Eye Theatre. The Word Players are David Haight, Sandra Ley, Sherry Pockell, Ann Rivers, Judith Seto, Edgar Walker, and Charles Wallrich. Produced and directed by Baird Searles, with technical direction from Ed Woodard and production assistance from John Agress.
