All Don Baker wants is a place of his own away from his over-protective mother. Don is setting up in a New York apartment and making the acquaintance of his off-the-wall, liberated, actress neighbor Jill. Don learns the kind of things from Jill that his mother would never have taught him! And Jill learns from Don what growing up and being free is really all about.
Butterflies Are Free (1969), a play by Leonard Gershe. To escape his domineering mother, Don Baker has taken his own apartment in New York. The decision is a brave one, since Don is totally blind. Before long Don is having an affair with his new neighbor, the slightly kooky actress Jill Tanner, but his mother will not leave Don alone. She and Jill are soon locked in battle, and for a while, it seems that Mrs. Baker will scare Jill into leaving Don. When Jill claims she simply does not want to be tied down to anyone, Don recognizes it as her unwillingness to commit to anyone, calling her “emotionally retarded… crippled. I’d rather be blind.” Jill stays and Don’s mother finally lets him live his own life.
*Don Baker, blind since birth, has moved to Manhattan in an attempt to make it as a songwriter. It is the first time he has been on his own, away from his over-protective mother.
When Jill, his free-spirited “flower child” neighbor, comes into his life, Don finds himself initially amused, and soon attracted to her. When mom arrives unexpectedly and finds the two of them together, fireworks erupt and the characters are forced to re-evaluate themselves and their personal foundations
