Bottle Fly, Paperback / softback Book

Bottle Fly Paperback / softback

Part of the Yale Drama Series series



An earthy, cruel, and hilarious family drama of profound and reckless love Set in a bar in the Florida Everglades, this biting, brutally funny multigenerational family drama concerns a Gulf Coast couple, their disabled young ward, two lesbian tenants, and the bonds that bind them all together.

The eleventh winner of the Yale Drama Series playwriting competition, it is a powerful story born out of the playwright's own experiences with the rapidly changing social environment of rural Florida, where long-standing traditions and beliefs can collide, sometimes dangerously, with new ideas of personhood, identity, and self-realization.

A rich and colorful melange of American classes and cultures, Bottle Fly recounts a profoundly human struggle to reconcile the masks worn at home with the ones donned to go out into the world.
