The Butter Factory Theatre

13 and 14 October 2017.

Award-winning local community theatre group, The Other Theatre Company, is pleased to present Butterfly Lounge – An original play written by local playwright Alexander Gibbs, complimented by an original score and lyrics composed by a talented young composer Katja Jorgensen in partnership with Tony Smith. Katja and Tony are both incredibly talented local musicians who amongst playing in various local bands, orchestras and musical theatre also teach at the Murray Conservatorium in Albury.

Butterfly Lounge is a play that will move and reward the audience with several musical numbers that can only be described as ‘the cat’s meow’. It was first performed on the NSW Central Coast in 2008. The production won the Adjudicator’s Award for Most Promising New Playwright at the Central Coast Theatre Festival in Wyong.

We’ve put together an incredibly talented cast, band and crew for the very limited season of 2 performances at The Butter Factory Theatre on Gateway Island at 7.30pm on 13 and 14 October 2017. Tickets available now at www.hothousetheatre.com.au pricing starts at $30 for concession.


Chicago, Christmas Eve 1928. Elliot ‘Lio’ Byrne is drowning his sorrows at the Butterfly Lounge, an illegal speakeasy in the most dangerous neighbourhood in town. The staff know him well: there’s Nancy the waitress, Ernie the bartender, Ralph the pianist and Leroy the doorman. Unfortunately, someone else in Chicago knows Lio’s in town, a mysterious and powerful gangster by the name of Charlie Drinkwater, and rumour has it Drinkwater wants a word with him. As if that’s not bad enough, his wife Maggie, teenage daughter Amy and best friend Cal wouldn’t mind a word with him too: they’d like him to come home to New York. In 2017.
