From 02/21/1991 to 03/24/1991


Presented at the People’s Center. A compelling and uncompromising look at a family unraveling in the grief of losing their youngest member.


The reviews are in.

“A powerful, imaginatively written drama about the devastating effect the death of a boy has on a once joyful family.

Frank Theatre is giving sparkling productions to two new plays by New York City playwright Migdalia Cruz, a strong new voice in American Theater. In LUCY LOVES ME and MIRIAM’S FLOWERS, Cruz reveals an acute sense of gritty realism combined with a fierce compassion for character’s trying unsuccessfully to combat demons largely of their own making. While LUCY LOVES ME is often complex and deeply layered, MIRIAM’S FLOWERS is far more accessible and even more powerful. Both are well worth seeing.”
