Madam Butterfly's Child

Directed by Soho Theatre’s artistic director Steve Marmion, “Madam Butterfly’s Child” tells the tale of Puccini’s great opera Madam Butterfly from the point of view of the 2nd Japanese Villager from the left. Almost entirely set to the highlights of the great tragic opera, this sweet story sees opera extra David launching himself from one potential backstage disaster to the next as he tries to find meaning in his otherwise uneventful existence.

“Sharp, original and highly entertaining, Lesley Ross’s bijou one-man playlet succeeds in touching depths that much more substantial works couldn’t access, even if they tried.” The Stage

“It’s a short, tightly written gem” Edinburgh Guide.Com

“a short sweet anthem” Three Weeks

“a one man 30 minute sprint of operatic pathos and fun” South China Morning Post, HK

*****Broadway Baby

After several years touring the world, the piece eventually found a second life as a radio play with BBC Radio Drama. The radio Version was directed by Gemma Jenkins and featured Paul Bazely and Carolyn Pickles. It was broadcast on BBC Radio 4
