BHS Players present “Flowers for Algernon”, November 15, 16 and 17th, at Crooker Theater, Brunswick High School. Shows are 7 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a matinee on Saturday at 2:00 pm.Flowers for Algernon written by David Rogers and based on the novel by Daniel Keyes is the compelling story of Charlie, a developmentally disabled man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold. The operation is tried on Charlie, who rapidly changes intellectually to a genius, far more intelligent than his teacher, Alice Kinnian, or the doctors who created the operating technique. As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening symptoms of regression. The play becomes a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. This is a different kind of play: poignant, romantic, funny and tragic, but with hope of man’s indomitable spirit.Tickets can be purchased on-line at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3626924 or at the door. Students and Seniors: $12, Adults $15.
