In Act Two of Wild Elusive Butterfly, Tom finds life after death on a South Sea Island. He meets new friends car-crasher Dr Friday, retired rent boy Sugar Popsicle, a cheeky Porpoise and – at Lake Baikal – novelist Fasil Iskander and the late Commissar of the Baikal Shotgun Factory. Alive, Jill confronts the unexpected consequences of childbirth. Daisy faces life alone.
‘Excellent writing and acting – really top notch stuff. I felt I was “watching” an expressive and creatively-structured stage play.’
A really intense, allegorical look at some very complex relationships, and the innate fear of commitment. Excellent writing and acting – really top notch stuff. I felt I was “watching” an expressive and creatively-structured stage play. Not for the kiddies, but this is really exquisite, mature audio fare. Unexpected, and simply a joy to listen to – dreamlike and sumptuous. A stage version would be amazing (and brutal).’ [David Collins-Rivera, Producer, Theater of the Imagination, New York]
