ARC STOCKTON PRESENTS Butterfly

ARC STOCKTON PRESENTS Butterfly

Arc Stockton presents Butterfly. Beatrice, an unlikely heroine in a story of not-so-everyday survival, sits in isolation, waiting for the outcome of a forced mental health assessment.

Beatrice, an unlikely heroine, sits in isolation, waiting for the outcome of a forced mental health assessment. She loved Bowie and the Bay City Rollers back then, and now revisits a personal history she only just remembers. But there is an important detail she has forgotten. Boudica and Butterfly guide her through both big historical moments and small personal details to re-imagine the corner she feels she has been painted into. If she could change the past would she?

She loved Bowie, the Buzzcocks and the Bay City Rollers back in the day, and now revisits a personal history she only just remembers. But there is an important detail she has forgotten, and she thinks they are putting words into her mouth. This clever, funny, dark piece allows us to assess how we treat human beings in the 21st century.

 

 




Beatrice examines whether the chaos theory of stigma has informed the status of people in her present. Whenever that is.

This clever, funny, dark piece allows us to assess how we treat human beings in the 21st century, expertly performed by Jacqueline Phillips.

What this play is not: It is not all in Beatrice’s head – the characters all exist within the world of the piece. It is not an exploration of a mental health condition. It is not about ‘suffering from’ or ‘surviving’ a condition. It is about the history of stigma, and misunderstandings and misrepresentations. It is about setting the record straight.

Oh, and who is Elizabeth?

An ARC Stockton Cultural Shift production developed in association with Little Cog.
