FLOWERCHILDREN is an exciting new musical about the turbulent private lives of the American vocal group The Mamas and The Papas between their spectacular rise to fame in 1966 and their tragic demise only four years later, in 1970. The musical explores the distrust, dangerous passions, and unhealthy co-dependencies behind this group who left a legacy of timeless hits such as ‘Monday Monday’, ‘Creeque Alley’, ‘Words of Love’, and the iconic ‘California Dreamin’.

Magnormos assisted the early development of flowerchildren in 2009 with a workshop presentation to invited industry peers, and will now be presenting the world premiere public season at Theatre Works for a strictly limited engagement.
