Say It With Flowers by Jane Thornton
Josef Weinberger Plays
From the Publishers:
Fresh off the back of their lastest amateur dramatics production, the Parish Players learn that circumstances beyond their control are forcing them to abandon the Parish Hall. Without anywhere to stage their plays, they decide to pull on their gardening gloves and enter the regional “Village in Bloom” competition in order to express their artistic flair. But not everyone is keen on the idea, and the seeds are quickly sown for a hilarious yet touching exploration of a village’s competitive streak, when opposing forces collide and relationships suddenly sit on opposite sides of the fence in a world where not everything is coming up roses.
