two sisters. a dangerous game. unforgivable consequences.

Kairos Italy Theater and The Tank present the U.S. premiere of acclaimed Italian playwright Emanuele Aldrovandi's tragi-comedy, the story of two sisters whose favorite pastime is a dangerous game: whichever holds a butterfly hairpin can ask the other one to do anything she wants. “Butterflies” is a fantastical tale of personal growth among sisterly love and sisterly rivalry in which self-discovery is not always accompanied by greater understanding of the other person.
