About the Show

The show traces the journey of self-discovery and emotional fulfillment of Orchid, an exotic creative who intoxicates those around her with her mystery, innocence and sensuality, and the creation of a reclusive and melancholic Master Gardner in his search for perfect beauty.  Opening in a seductive garden somewhere between fantasy and reality and populated with other beauties such as Poison Ivy, Honeysuckle Rose, Tiger Lily, and the Bee Keeper, Orchid incites a hedonistic frenzy when she gets “pollinated” by the King Bee and embarks on a quest for meaning in a world filled with beauty, youth, desire, and the pursuit of pleasure.
