Flowers For Algernon

from Chatsworth Players

Flowers For Algernon, performed by Chatsworth Players, is a thought-provoking piece about the unforeseen consequences of scientific experiments. Adapted from the award-winning book, the story follows Charlie, a man with learning disabilities, who eagerly participates in an experiment to increase intelligence. The experiment has had proven success in a lab mouse called Algernon, and Charlie is eager for his own journey to mirror that of his small friend’s. As Charlie’s intelligence increases he is faced with many unpleasant realisations… and then Algernon suddenly declines. 

Chatsworth Players are delighted to make their Fringe debut with this challenging piece. Performing classic plays in the beautiful setting of Chatsworth House since 2007, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to expand our repertoire and to visit Buxton.
