B8 Theater Company will be showing Pinned Butterfly, a play by Adam Esquenazi Douglas, from April 4th to April 22nd.

This Peet Cocke directed play discusses when members of BKPRIDE decide to hold the very first Brooklyn Gay Pride March, a handful of secrets ignite, turning what should be a celebration of self into a scathing dissection of bisexual erasure, prejudice within the LGBT community, and what happens to love left out in the sun. As marching drums beat in the distance, war brews among lovers, enemies, and hearts. There's also a handful of time travel scattered about. PINNED BUTTERFLY is a new play exploring the issue of bisexual erasure within the LGBT community and a searing dissection of a rarely-discussed problem.
