The Sex Life of Butterflies

The Sex Life of Butterflies

Martin Dockery

New York, NY

Comedic, ridiculous, and profound story about love, death, and butterflies.

Billed as “the best storyteller in the US” (Orlando Sentinel), Dockery’s comedic, ridiculous, and profound story dives headlong into the mysterious connection between love and death. Funny, true, & heartbreaking – sometimes all at once. Not to be missed! “5 STARS… A verbal magician.” -NOW Magazine, Toronto. “Deliriously entertaining.” –Orlando Weekly.
