Little Shop of Horrors
Stranmillis College Theatre, Belfast, Tuesday, June 22-26, 7.45pm
Based on Roger Corman's film, Seymour Krelborn, a florist's assistant, has his life turned around when, after an eclipse of the sun, he uncovers a rather unusual plant. He calls his latest edition Audrey II after the salesgirl who has captured his heart. But like his love, the plant fails to thrive — until he discovers its true diet: blood. As Audrey II blossoms, bringing Seymour fame and fortune, the two strike a Faustian pact. Seymour, his boss Mushnik, Audrey and her abusive dentist boyfriend are swept into the plant's evil machinations as its true motives become clear.
