Butterflies Are Free
by Leonard Gershe
Directed by Jan McKillip
July 1997


From Samuel French:

Young Don Baker, hero of his mother's children's book series, "Donny Dark" has been blind since birth, his overprotective mother following his every move. Don finally decides to take his own apartment in Manhattan and pursue his songwriting ambitions. When she meets his kooky neighbor, sexy actress Jill, Mrs. Baker's controlling instincts go into overdrive with hilariously touching results. A hit in New York and later a film starring Goldie Hawn.

"A lovely play. It is funny when it means to be, sentimental when it is so inclined, and heartwarming." -N.Y. Daily News

"A charming play...humorous, winning and quietly moving." -N.Y. Post
