Flora is a Roman goddess of flowers, youth, fertility and Springtime. During her festival, held at the end of April, men and women would dress in costume and enjoy five days of performances. She continues to be a symbol for nature.

Something about buds opening, cool breezes, birds singing and bees buzzing makes Ms. O’Connor think about sex. To be fair, most things make her think about sex. This play is about sex.
