Flowers for Algernon
By David Rogers
Based on the novel by Daniel Keyes
Directed by Veronikka Sylvas

This is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally retarded man and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on both Algernon and Charlie increasing their intelligences ten fold. Soon Charlie's intelligence far exceeds that of his teacher, Alice Kinnian and even the doctors who created the operating technique! As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening signs of regression. Soon things become a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new found intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. Will Charlie be able to save himself in time?!
