The Bee Play
By Elizabeth Savage
Directed by Sarah Whitney
Thursday, September 8 – Sunday, September 25
A world premiere! Carver Washington, a brilliant, young beekeeper from the Bronx finds his only respite from caring for his little sister and his housebound grandmother by escaping to his oasis on his building’s roof. Rooftop visits from Devora, a kindred spirit fresh out of Yale who’s setting up a kibbutz in the neighborhood, lead them to share their dreams, anxieties and hopes during a time of colony collapse, both for bees and humans. With the city far below, they wonder together what forgiveness might look like in the 21st century.
Masks must be worn properly over the nose and mouth at all times while in the theatre.
