Choking the Butterfly


  • The Storefront Theatre 955 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON, M6H 1L7 Canada (map)

Teenaged conjoined twins, Betty and Barney, are left to their own devices in an abandoned button factory after an operation to separate them. Thrown out of a cosy institution of bath times and warm needles they grew up in, they are now left with a suitcase packed with bottles of milk and cash – the land of milk and money they dreamed of as children. Both individually meet the troubled yet charismatic Brody who introduces them to the dark underbelly of a contemporary society riddled with drugs and voyeurism.

CHOKING THE BUTTERFLY IS PRODUCED BY RARELY PURE THEATRE.
