Iconic floral designer and cookery writer Constance Spry remains a household name to this day. A pioneer for working women, Constance ran a successful business as the florist of choice for the highest of high society, designing floral displays for royal weddings and indeed for the Queen's coronation as well as creating the iconic dish 'Coronation Chicken'.
Mrs. Spry undoubtedly played a leading part in London society during the 1930s. But behind the image of this highly respected business woman lay a very different story: one of marital discord, affairs and heartache.
Storm in a Flower Vase tells the story of a complicated, driven and profoundly unconventional soul in this must-see intimate expose.
A new play from Anton Burge, directed by Alan Strachan.
