Wanderlust Theater Lab will be producing my second play in the trilogy of the same name: Butterfly, February 15, 16, 22 and 23.  Butterfly explores the final day of a self-appointed prophet, Todd (half-Black and half-Jewish), a once promising professional baseball player who answered a call to prophecy fifteen years before.  The  play takes place in the suburban Washington D.C. living room of the house he grew up in, with his single acolyte (a Serbian refugee), a therapist, a medieval Muslim mystic (Ibn Sina) he has called back from the dead, the bubbly Martini, a beautician, his mother and various other characters that help bring his quest for prophecy to resolution. "Butterfly," received its first reading at the Kennedy Center (Washington DC) on September 3, 2012.  This will be its world premier production.
