Seeking a fresh start, a thirtysomething single mother arrives with her son – an awkward teenager and botany enthusiast – in Crested Butte, Colorado, home of the Wildflower Festival. Over the course of one turbulent summer, their lives become entwined with those of a local forest ranger, a precocious teenaged girl, and a retired drag queen. A contemporary coming-of-age story, Wildflower asks - when does something beautiful become dangerous? What are the consequences of desire? Presented under the auspices of ND Theatre NOW, a special event in FTT’s mainstage season which annually features a production realized entirely by student artists, Wildflower is directed by senior theatre major Anthony Murphy.
