tells the story of Rose Williams, sister and muse to Tennessee Williams. As the older, more dynamic of the two Williams siblings, Rose creates a safe and idyllic childhood for herself and her shy and sickly brother. But the children's world is suddenly changed when their father, a hard-drinking, womanizing, traveling salesman, moves the family to the "dreadful" city of St. Louis. As Rose and Tom struggle to cope with their puritanical mother and tyrannical father, and their own emerging sexual identities, the underpinnings of their symbiotic relationship begin to crumble. Tom eventually escapes the oppressive household through his writing, while Rose, who has a lobotomy at age 34, remains imprisoned behind a terminal wall of silence. BLACK BUTTERFLIES not only depicts the deep love and ultimate betrayal between a fascinating, silenced woman and her famous brother, it gives Rose the opportunity to tell her story from her own perspective for the first time.
