Tears of A Rose
Tears of A Rose is a play that explores the concept of giving loved ones their flowers while they’re living as opposed to waiting until they’re gone. This play uses the lens of motherhood to address the concerns of delayed expressions of gratitude, appreciation, and love for those who have significantly impacted our lives. ‘Tears’ hopes to inspire its viewers to examine their own lives in order to express these emotions to a parent, sibling, relative, or friend. Some of the scenarios include: a woman who questions her motherhood when losing her child; a mother who adopts a child; a man who misses his mother’s funeral while incarcerated. “Tears of A Rose” was formerly titled “Fading Flowers”. This is the same show, but a more exciting title.
