Collecting Butterflies

“We’re not supposed to keep secrets in here, so I’ll tell you… There’s a monster living under my bed.” (Extract)

Rach suffers from borderline personality disorder and depression. Currently living in a medical facility, she dreams of the day she can live independently.

Her sister Em calls to tell her their father is fatally ill in hospital and he’s asking to see her. Will she go?

This request pushes Rach down a rabbit hole of secrets and nightmares that bring her to the brink. Can she beat them and visit him?

With a mind that’s fractured and bruised, this is the story of Rach’s journey to finally kill the monster under her bed and live the life she dreams of.

Originally developed on retreat at 57a, and workshopped with To The Moon, with thanks to Sharon Burrell and the actors who have helped develop the script.

I’m now looking for opportunities to present the play in performance.
