Nobody Suspects a Butterfly

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY CHRIS HENRY
WITH ADDITIONAL WRITINGS BY KATIE AVEBE
Performed May 29-31, 2008 at 8 PM.

In Winthrop, Maine, (pop. 6,724) within a span of 26 months five former high school athletes committed suicide. The media sought to find reason by focusing on one aspect of the boys’ lives – high school football.  When CNN and Sports Illustrated (see Sports Illustrated article) investigated the story, it became national news. Nobody Suspects A Butterfly is a play based on these true events, told through football, dance, archival footage and interviews.

In 2008, HBO Sports and Ross Greenburg commissioned Henry to write a film treatment for Nobody Suspects A Butterfly.

The last workshop of Nobody Suspects A Butterfly, directed by Chris Henry and choreographed by Dante Puleio, was presented at TBG Theatre in New York City May 2011.
