Through his friendship with Flo and her modern nomadic lifestyle, Raymond attempts to escape the greyness of the Glasgow scheme into Scotland’s natural world, with some unflinching self-reflection along the way.
I Hope Your Flowers Bloom will be showing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe between 2nd and 27th August
