Mighty Little Flowers
by Noelle Cristiano
Directed by Shannon Molly Flynn
Zara and Carmine are two lower-class seniors from different religious and cultural backgrounds competing for the same scholarship at their Catholic high school on Staten Island. They find home in each other, as they navigate through their struggle of identity, familial obligations, and societal standards, all before their walls start crumbling down.
Normal Ave hosted the second developmental phase of the new play, "Mighty Little Flowers," by Noelle Cristiano. Our first phase was a closed reading in July 2017 where we put artistic minds in a room and read the play aloud, getting feedback and talking through the plot. The next phase will be a fully staged production. Check out some photos from the reading and stay tuned for updates!
