'dirty butterfly' flutters, implodes, and explodes

debbie tucker green’s dirty butterfly is a nightmare about nightmares. The play oscillates between the dreamily poetic and lacerating realism. At 65-minutes it could be longer, but it’s always fascinating. Anton’s Well gives this difficult play a more than credible production with three strong performances. The play and the production are not perfect, but they’re alive and vibrant. And that’s what we should want.

dirty butterfly runs through October 7 at the Waterfront Theater in Berkeley. For tickets and information click here. Read the full review here.
