Story Summary: In Winthrop, Maine, (pop. 6,724) within a span of 26 months 5 former high school athletes committed suicide. The media sought to find reason by focusing on one aspect of these boys lives – high school football. When CNN and Sports Illustrated investigated the story, it became national news. Nobody Suspects AButterfly written and directed by Chris(tine) Henry is a play based on these true events, told through football, dance, archival footage and interviews. Three months ago, another former Winthrop football player took his life. He played with four of the five young men described above. This last suicide crystallized the need to get this play produced.
