About Everyman at the Parkway
Everyman at the Parkway is a six-part film series presented in partnership with the Maryland Film Festival, bringing influential films to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway in conjunction with Everyman Theatre’s 2017/18 season. David Henry Hwang’s torrid and timeless Tony Award-winning M. BUTTERFLY (in performances September 6 – October 8, 2017) brings hide-and-seek to the stage in a gripping fable that proves the allure of fantasy and the power of obsession are a recipe for betrayal.
