THE BEE JAR PROJECT PRESENT A REHEARSED READING
THE BOY WITH THE BEE JAR
BY JOHN STRAITON
“That apparently chaotic flight that looks like madness hatched and let loose in the world conforms to the rules of physics. Is nuanced. And elegant. And not at all random. How can I leave here?”
On a North London estate, a swarm of bees attracts an environmentally minded schoolboy who feels responsible for his father’s suicide. He meets an old anarcho-punk called Euston, a witness to a horrific stabbing, and together they literally play out the dark goings-on of life on the estate and of their own fears.
The Boy with the Bee Jar was long-listed at the 2019 Bruntwood Prize.
Cast includes Trevor Fox.
