    The Hampstead Stage Company (HSC), a national professional touring theatre company based in Center Barnstead, NH is visiting the area with their Signature Series Production, Little Bits of Light: an Adaptation of I Never Saw Another Butterfly.
     
    In this unique adaptation of I Never Saw Another Butterfly, playwright Amanda Faye Martin intertwines poems and artwork from children at the concentration camp Terezin with major historical events and her own family’s history. The story follows Pepicek, an optimistic Czech boy, and Werner, an isolated young man who only recently discovered he’s Jewish, during their time at Terezin. Tension builds as the camp anticipates a visit from the Red Cross and children are whisked away to places unknown. Despite the harsh reality inside the camp, Pepicek and Werner must find moments of unity, a sense of identity, and little bits of light.  
     
    Little Bits of Light is best suited for audiences ages 10 and up.
     
    Each year, HSC performs over 2,000 shows across the nation in various venues includes theatres, schools, libraries, and more. HSC’s interactive educational tours run year-round and are performed by two professional actors, each playing multiple roles. HSC was founded over 36 years ago and is dedicated to providing high  quality theatre to under-served communities.
