Wild Elusive Butterfly Act I

Wild Elusive Butterfly Act I

In Act One of Wild Elusive Butterfly, cargo vessel Turmoil prepares to set sail for the Southern Ocean.  Shipowner Daisy Ballantyne and cargo owner Tom Devine negotiate terms and conceal desire.  Pregnant Jill and husband Jack explore the limits of marriage.  John and Peter enjoy contentment.  Primordial spirits feel undervalued.  And a tornado is approaching. ‘Unexpected, and simply a joy to listen to’ Wild Elusive Butterfly Act I Written By John Park Download Act 2  and Act 3 Wild Elusive Butterfly is a love story, dealing with universal themes. Inability to be honest with a loved one. Failure to sustain a relationship. Powerlessness to save a child. Daisy and Tom face love and loss. People in their lives (and sometimes beyond) face emotional or physical dispossession, intertwining as they search, ignore and try to fill their individual voids. Honesty? Lives disintegrate as people struggle with what they need to say, should say, want to say. Loss snaps friendship. Sometimes, only help from beyond the present world and lifetime can provide the clarity needed to go on. And you can never go back.
