Winner of the Tony award, Outer Critics Circle award, John Gassner award, Drama Desk award, and Pulitzer Prize.
David Henry Hwang's remarkable re-telling of a French diplomat's 20 year affair with a Chinese opera star and Communist spy, who is revealed to also be a man. Begging the question "How could he not know?" M. Butterfly brilliantly cuts through racism, gender, and international politics with the dual-edged sword of love and fantasy.
