FLOWERS staring Olivia Colman and Anna Chancellor starts tonight on C4 with a double bill from 10pm and then every night until Friday’s finale!

Written by BAFTA nominated Will Sharpe, FLOWERS tells the story of an eccentric family (the ‘Flowers’), struggling to hold themselves together. Maurice (author of twisted children’s books ‘The Grubbs’) and Deborah are a husband and wife who are barely together but yet to divorce. As Maurice fights inner demons and dark secrets, Deborah tries to keep the family together at all costs and becomes increasingly suspicious that Maurice is in a secret homosexual relationship with his Japanese illustrator, Shun.

In a dystopian near-future, Brutus (Mark Stanley, Game of Thrones) and his co-conspirators plot Caesar’s demise in the second of The British Council’s series of Films for Shakespeare Lives 2016. Pedro Martin-Calero directs the contemporary re-imaginings of Shakespeare’s most beloved works, in a global programme that celebrates William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of this death.

Costume Designer GRACE SNELL created a custom made shirt and collar with red detailing to symbolise blood for Brutus and his accomplices. Caesar’s costume draws from 1970s influences, and a gold laurel brooch provides a subtle nod to Caesar’s iconic wreath from the original story.

To fit in with the stylized costume, slick hair and minimal make up were used by Hair & Make Up Designer DORITA NISSEN. Side burn pieces were added to Caesar by DORITA and her team to further emphasize the 1970s styling.

GRACE and DORITA have previously worked together on Ballantine’s Whiskey directed by Thomas Hilland at Partizan and O2 directed by Fred Rowson at Colonel Blimp.

For enquiries regarding GRACE and DORITA please contact Lucy at Wizzo & Co.
