About this show

Butterflies of Uganda is a fictional rendering of the all-too-real ordeal of Uganda's child soldiers. Written by Darin Dahms and Soenke C. Weiss and directed by Darin Dahms, Butterflies of Uganda tells the story of Mary, who as a child was stolen from her home in northern Uganda and forced to fight as a soldier of the Lord's Resistance Army. The story unfolds years later as Mercy (Mary's teenage daughter) discovers the truth about her mother (Mary's) tragic past and the details of her own conception.
