M. Butterfly, written by Chinese-American playwright David Henry Hwang and directed by Jeffrey Mason and Susan Mason, received the Tony Award for Best Play in 1988. Based loosely on the real-life romance between a French diplomat and a Chinese opera diva in the 1960s-1980s, M. Butterfly is a tale of love, deceit, and espionage. Although there are references to Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, the opera, this show is NOT the opera. Performed in three acts, M. Butterfly is recommended for mature audiences; it contains adult content, language, and nudity. Tickets are available online at and at Briar Patch Co-op in Grass Valley. Ticket prices vary. Show times Thursday (7pm), Friday and Saturday (8pm) and Sunday (2pm). M. Butterfly is Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra’s 25th Anniversary production.

“A brilliant play of ideas. A visionary work that bridges the history and culture of two worlds.” -- Frank Rich, The New York Times
