Description

Set in London in the 1930s, the play explores the early career of Constance Spry, founder of the celebrated business Floral Decorations that supplied floral arrangements to the upper ranks of society including the artist Gluck and interior decorator Syrie Maugham. 

Spry's unconventional relationships, professional ambition and the conflicting demands of career and domestic duties reveal the complex internal life of the woman later famed as a cook and inventor of the dish Coronation Chicken.

Inspired by the biography The Surprising Life of Constance Spry by Sue Shephard, Storm in a Flower Vase is a powerful and moving piece examining themes of class, gender and sexuality that still have a profound resonance today.
