FRESH: US Premiere of ‘Choking the Butterfly’

Evan is currently performing as Barney in the US premiere of Choking the Butterfly with EBE Ensemble. Limited run to Nov. 10th! See below for tickets and information.



Written by Northern Ireland’s James Johnson, previously nominated for the BBC/Stewart Parker Trust Award in 2009
Directed by Eric Mercado

Teenage conjoined twins Betty and Barney are left to their own devices in an abandoned button factory after an operation to separate them. Thrown out of a cozy institution of bath times and constant care they are now left with a suitcase packed with bottles of milk and cash – the land of milk and money they dreamed of as children. After living so long without temptation what now for two teenagers who naively name themselves after a pair of cartoon characters from the television?
