Abstract:
""Butterflies Don`t Cry" features a play within a play. Robert and Sharon, real-life lovers, plan to elope when the final curtain falls on their amateur production of The Butterfy Lovers. "Feeding the Armadillo" uses anonymous `spare-parts` actors to voice the rumours and fears that swept through Singaporean employers and Filipino maids, at the time of the notorious Flor Contemplacion murder case. "One Night in Bethlehem" is a community play that recalls the earliest traditions of Western theatre. Simple instructions enable the audience to take an active part in events in a town not so different from our own.
