The Amaryllis

By Michele Riml

Lucy is a terrifically talented voice over artist and Jeremy is her troubled agent, who would sooner jump off a cliff before ever following a dream of his own. Sister and brother for better or for worse, these two are inextricably bound. The amaryllis plant – a mysterious gift from a mysterious giver – takes on a strange power over their lives. The Amaryllis is a mystery about what it really takes to grow and a comedy about what it really takes to change.

"...the play reminds us how challenging and fragile change can be and how difficult it is to undertake in isolation."
