‘We are gonna conquer the world man’
Chrysalis showcases two new plays focusing on the formative experiences of early adulthood and how they shape us for the rest of our lives. Butterflies of Life is a comic but penetrating look behind the curtain at an elite drama school. The students of colour are on the glossy brochure – but what are their lives really like?
Scratches is the story of a girl, and the scratches she’s hidden for far too long. Now, with the help of a friend, she’s ready to come clean.
This one-woman play is a comedic yet visceral deep dive into the mind of a woman living with anxiety, navigating the minefield of her twenties.
Writers: Chirag Benedict Lobo & Daniel Adeosun (Butterflies of Life) & Aoife Kennan (Scratches)
Directors: Darren Sinnott (Butterflies of Life) & Gabriella Bird (Scratches)
