I directed "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" at a former school with the same type of demographic. The students really connected to the subject, especially the idea of using art as a means of coping with the horrors that the children were going through. I also had great buy-in from the other subject areas to support the play with their units of study. We even had math teachers teach students to design and graph a butterfly garden, science classes planted the appropriate plants, and art students designed and built a Holocaust memorial for the garden.
