Bottle Fly


Jacqueline Goldfinger


Yale University

Bottle Fly is an ambitious work….[It] illuminates love in many guises: love for those who have mattered to one in the past, love that was born as pity, love tinged with guilt, love for those who need your protection and love for someone who, without even knowing that she was doing it, holds out the promise of a more beautiful life.” — Nicholas Wright, from the Foreword
“Jacqueline Goldfinger is that rarity in American theatre — a poet-playwright. Bottle Fly is a gorgeous play, roaring with the sacred and the profane and — for all its passion--delicately conveyed.” — Dan O’Brien, author of The Body of an American
