While feeling ill, Sussie’s friend Stefan, tries to cheer her up. Every time he brings her flowers, the Flower Fairies appear and whisper beautiful poems. The only problem is, Sussie can’t hear them: She doesn’t believe fairies exist, for how could she when there is a war and bad things happen every day?

Based on true events, the play Blommefeetjies tells the story of how Cecily Mary Barker created the popular “Flower Fairies” books. In the beginning of the previous century during the First World War, Cecily – still a child at that stage – started painting flower fairies and wrote poems about them. During the time, the British population grew so tired of the war that they started believing in the existence of fairies.

Blommefeetjies is a children’s play with the message that even in a world where bad things happen, children and adults alike, can still appreciate the beauty in small things. Or as Rose Fairy says: “Always believe in the beauty of life; something towards which we can strive”.

Blommefeetjies is the UFS Drama Department’s last children’s production of the year and will be performed from 13 – 16 September 2017 in the Rehearsal Room Theatre at the drama department.

Tickets cost R25 p.p. or R20 p.p. for groups of ten or more and are available at Computicket.
