At the next ScriptTank meeting, we will hear Bee Happy, “a darkly comic 45 minute two-handler about bees, intergenerational buddies and bad behaviour” by Tom Wentworth.
Penny keeps bees on her roof. Desperate to escape during a house party, she persuades her young friend Ben to join her for drinks, gossip and a few home truths up on the roof. But things aren’t all that they seem, with Penny’s son missing – presumed dead. Penny’s tried to mould Ben to fit her son shaped hole, but what happens when your friendship is put on the line?
It was originally performed script-in-hand at the Old Red Lion in 2016.
