The Wild Flower Book
“A new two-act play written and directed by Sechelt resident Louise Phillips about the blossoming of hope, love and a Canadian Classic”

The Wild Flower Book is based on a true story of courage and hope in meeting the challenges of poverty and loneliness. It is 1865 in Upper Canada, and newly widowed Agnes FitzGibbon must find a way to support her six children. A talented amateur painter, she sets out to create the very first book of Canadian wild flowers. Without a single colour press in the colony to print her illustrations, Agnes fears her dream will wither on the vine. A Victorian woman in a man’s world, she faces her publisher’s reluctance, her mother’s disapproval and her own self-doubt. Enlisting the aid of her three young daughters to hand paint each drawing, Agnes discovers the importance of family and of belief in her dream…and changes the nature of Canadian book publishing forever.
