Presented by Wild Conspiracy
  • Drama
  • Musical

The year is 2121.
Honeybees are now extinct.
Now the only hives are the ones that humans have built for themselves.
It’s not the next revolution – it’s the one after.

100 years into the future, cities have sealed themselves under holographic domes to protect themselves from the inhospitable climate. Yet, when the robo-bee population begins to die off like their honeymaking ancestors, the fate of this new society rests upon the fading memories of the last living beekeeper, a (former?) revolutionary who goes by the name Queen B.

Written by Elle Thoni, composed by Damuen Strange, and buzzing with the sonic imagination of a multi-talented ensemble under the direction of Harry Waters Jr., QUEEN B is a fun & uplifting new outdoor musical dripping with honeybee futurism.
