A courageous doctor risks all, to shine a light on the right to choose. This is the true story of Dr Alida Lancee, the Perth doctor whose actions galvanised the public debate on assisted dying in WA and changed laws.

Written by Hellie Turner, performed by Alison Van Reeken, and directed by Emily McLean, Lesson in the Art of Butterfly was produced as part of Black Swan State Theatre Company’s Unsung Heroes: A Digital Festival of Western Australian Stories.

Unsung Heroes is a collection of tour-de-force solo performances featuring 5 untold stories about 5 extraordinary Western Australians.

In a world premiere season directed by Emily McLean and Joe Paradise Lui, the production is a timely reminder of our shared humanity and our uniquely Western Australian identity, telling stories of courage, adventure, new beginnings, dignity – and life’s music.
