The Butterfly Collector is inspired by the John Fowles Novel ‘The Collector’ and surrealist film, ‘La Belle et la Bête’ by Jean Cocteau. A beautiful young Art Gallery Curator enters a strange Curiosity shop in London’s East End where the owner decides to add her to his collection. She was not the first, nor possibly the last. Will she escape, fall in love, or end up in a bell jar? A dark tale of love and possession.
