Bottle Fly

Bottle Fly is a brutally funny multigenerational family drama that concerns a Gulf Coast couple, their disabled young ward, two lesbian tenants, and the ties that bind. It is a powerful story where tradition collides with new ideas surrounding identity. "[It] illuminates love in many guises: love for those who have mattered to one in the past, love that was born as pity, love tinged with guilt, love for those who need your protection and love for someone who, without even knowing that she was doing it, holds out the promise of a more beautiful life." -Nicholas Wright, playwright, Broadway, West End
