Florence ‘Flo’ Smith – Now and Then

Florence 'Flo' Smith - Now and Then
Date/Time - Sun 14/04/2019 - 7:30 PM -

It`s 1969 and a woman looks back on her life lived in London. From The Boer War to The Summer of Love, Florence Smith, daughter, sister, wife, mother, widow and grandmother recalls with horror, humour, tears and joy those turbulent times at home, and, in the world beyond her front door.

 

“Feisty, funny and frank…Flo,a working class London girl who has endured poverty, injustice, a troubled upbringing, love and loss… her reminisces intermingle with world events—it is Christopher Saul`s intimate biographical detail framed against the background politics that give her gossipy ramblings a historical importance and unique insightfulness…Incredibly vivid…transports the audience magically back to those moments in time…Human and relatable. Ursula Mohan, who has played everything from a female Lear to a “hottie” in “On The Buses”, is at ease as Flo…entirely convincing…a spunky old dear who has seen it all, a performance definitely more than the sum of its parts.”   Gill Sutherland, Stratford Herald .
