Choking the Butterfly


  • Playwright

    James Johnson 

  • Synopsis

    Betty and Barney have lived their sheltered life joined at the hip… literally! Finally set free and equipped with all the money in the world they are left to fend for themselves in a whirlwind of voyeuristic transactions and instant acquaintances. Can they survive separately yet stay together? A tender and raw new play by James Johnson about the slippery chance between finding your feet and going into free fall.
