Flowers For Algernon

We are thrilled to make our Buxton Fringe Festival début with Flowers for Algernon. This one-act play by David Rogers is a thought-provoking piece about the unforeseen consequences of scientific experiments. Adapted from the award-winning book, the story follows Charlie, a man with learning disabilities, who eagerly participates in an experiment to increase his intelligence. The experiment has had proven success in a lab mouse called Algernon, and Charlie is eager for his own journey to mirror that of his small friend’s. As Charlie’s intelligence increases he is faced with many unpleasant realisations… and then Algernon suddenly declines.
