'Dandelion' brings audiences into the world of two sisters clinging onto their childhoods while their mother is away in the army. This site-specific production is set in "the garden", an idealistic space full of flowers, trees, and a swing-set. The audience walk around the space while listening to the sisters through headphones.
A highlight of the play was when the sisters invited the audience to play 'Grandma's Footsteps'. I expected the usual awkwardness that comes with audience participation, but as the games were woven into the script naturally, everyone got involved.
The script was either written from the heart, or incredibly well researched. Furthermore, the narration found the perfect balance of poetry and realism.
If you're at the Edinburgh Fringe, I wholeheartedly recommend watching 'Dandelion'.
