Stage Reading of Black Butterflies at the Road Theater in LA.
Directed by Riley Steiner and sponsored by Jessica Wierzba.

Big thanks to Frank Collison, Jessie Einstein, Laura Gardner, Kyle Hall, Alex Smith, Tim Wardell, and Jessica Suzanne Wierzba for making Black Butterflies come alive on stage.


Black Butterflies is a poignant and poetic account of Tennessee Williams’ older sister and creative muse, Rose. Marylou DiPietro gives Rose her overdue “me, too” moment and releases her long quieted voice in this lovely play. I was honored to have been a small part of the play’s journey at The Road in Los Angeles.”
