M Butterfly Questions

  1. Do you sympathize at all with Gallimard? Can you think of ways that you might relate to him?

2. We know that Gallimard is shocked by the idea that Song is a male, but how does Song really change over the course of the play? What has everyone else overlooked because they’ve been caught up with her gender?

3. Have you ever chosen to ignore the truth and return to a preferred reality?
