Formerly titled, The Butterfly Collection.

A hit from Playwrights' Horizons in 2000, this delicious play by the author of Spike Heels and The Family of Mann is an intelligent and funny ensemble drama. A family of artists are both cruelly destructive and fiercely protective of each other. Paul, a Nobel winning novelist suffering from writer's block, his elegant but feisty wife, two sons an actor and an antique dealer and the actor's girlfriend are together for the first time in ages. Enter Paul's new assistant, a talented and passionate writing student. Bitter, funny chaos ensues.
