The Bee – Play Synopsis
What would you do if your wife and child were held hostage?
When an ordinary office worker returns home to find his wife and child kidnapped, he’s drawn into a dark and dangerous game of revenge where manga comic-strip frenzy turns into an absurd and ferocious nightmare.
The Bee has won prestigious Japanese theatre wards including Asahi Performing Arts Award Grand Prix and the Yomiuri Theater awards Grand Prize for best play, and returns to Soho Theatre with original Olivier Award winning star Kathryn Hunter and Japanese theatre legend Hideki Noda.
‘This is a highly unusual theatrical gem: part slapstick comedy, part satire, part macabre dance’
