By Max Bush.

Cast: 4m., 7w. Sarah is a vulnerable, dreamy, creative teen who has experienced more than her share of tragedies. One of these was the death of her sister Molly. As she struggles, like any teen, to figure out who she is and what's important to her, Sarah runs into conflicts with her family, friends, teachers and parts of herself. Her mother is especially concerned as the anniversary of Molly's death approaches. Sarah and Urna (a "spirit" that inhabits Sarah's room) have painted a butterfly on Sarah's face because it's spring and it's just how Sarah feels, and she hopes that her date later that night will like it. She's going to see Molly's old boyfriend, Ian. Molly, another denizen of Sarah's world, is excited that Ian is coming to see Sarah. Sarah goes off to rehearse the school play, and her classmates tease and mock her. Although the director appreciates her butterfly, she's concerned about Sarah's recent behavior. Sarah returns home discouraged and depressed and decides not to wear the butterfly for her date. Ian appears and is truly charmed by Sarah, flattering her and, most amazing to Sarah, understanding her and praising her for what others call her "weirdness." They talk about Molly, about living an artist's life, and about a possible future together. Because of her stong feelings for Ian and what Ian wants, what Urna and Molly want, and what her mother wants for Sarah, Sarah is forced to decide who she is and what is most important in her life and act accordingly. But this is difficult as the insistent voices within and without her world struggle to be heard. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
