Butterflies are Free

This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:

Loosely based on the life of attorney Harold Krents, the plot revolves around a blind man living in downtown Manhattan, whose controlling mother disapproves of his relationship with a free-spirited hippie. The title was inspired by a passage in Charles Dickens’ 1853 novel BLEAK HOUSE: “I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies.”
