Sommerfugl – Norwegian for Butterfly, is an all-female play which tells the story of two friends Hope and Florence, both in their early fifties – now both divorced with a daughter.
Hope has sacrificed her personal life to devote herself to raising the feisty Kiki, whereas Florence refashioned her life exactly as she wanted, even if that meant becoming alienated from her teenage daughter, the perfectionist Myrna. Today, a 28 year old Myrna returns after three years of medical residency in Oslo. Florence eagerly anticipates her daughter’s return, but in order to face her, she will need to go back not just three but fourteen years, to the day she abandoned her to follow her lover.
Sommerfugl is a play about the terms and boundaries of motherly love, a woman’s right to claim happiness and a young woman’s desperate effort to regain the privileges she was shorn of.
