For one weekend only Eastern Michigan University Theatre will be producing “The Butterfly” as a stage reading. “The Butterfly” is a Perisan fable of survival, bravery and sacrifice directed by Patricia Zimmer. Originally adapted by Bijan Mofid with a new translation by Pirooz Aghssa.
Facing a life or death challenge from a dangerous spider, a beautiful butterfly must go in search of insects to bring back in order to avoid becoming the spider’s next meal. On her path she discovers a world of fantastical creatures, new adventures and inner strength. Each encounter touches the butterfly’s heart and she leaves a part of herself with everyone she meets.
Performances of The Butterfly will be in the Sponberg Theatre on Friday, March 3 and Saturday, March 4 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 5 at 2 p.m. Recommended for ages 10 and above.
