    Two neighbors live side-by-side in Texas. A low fence separates their gardens, but much more divides them. One grows flowers; the other raises vegetables. One was born in the U.S., the other in Mexico. One speaks English, the other Spanish. Their differences have kept them so far apart that even the arrival of a caterpillar causes disagreement—until the resulting mariposa/butterfly, and its eventual departure, unites them in wonder, sadness and a new understanding of the beautiful world they share.

    A multicultural ensemble takes on characters who dive headlong into their experiences of trying to stay personally connected in the digital age. Actors take on many characters to create a cacophony of viewpoints: an internet influencer, a gender fluid go-getter, a mother and son who desperately want to be seen, the popular students with a tendency to bully, and the misfits who strive to be understood. These unique voices create a dynamic theatrical whirlwind that is full of humor and insight. Learn More
