The New York premiere revolves around two female scientists, who are researching vanishing bee populations across the globe More…
After seven years of research, Sanam and Ariel are about to publish a career-defining paper when Sanam stumbles upon an error which could cause catastrophic damage to their reputations, careers, and friendship. Now, both women are confronted with an impossible choice: look the other way and save the bees – or tell the truth and face the consequences?
“A story particularly relevant to today’s political climate...The intimacy of the setting allows the audience to completely immerse themselves in the story of two female graduate students...Both characters push personal and professional boundaries...I found the story both relatable and realistic in its approach to scientific research and the pitfalls of long-term data collection...Any play that leaves you talking, thinking and discussing for days afterwards is...one worth pursuing.” Full Review
See it if new voices, great acting, important issues, relationships, academic and social politics well crafted mean good theater in your opinion.
Don't see it if getting to Queens is inconvenient, or you don't like to think to hard about important issues when you are in the theatre.
See it if Scientists’ relationships are stressed when flaws emerge in their work. Well written & acted. Humorous romantic subplot with a wall st guy
Don't see it if You are not interested in science & academic research. A few liberties are taken to add to the conflicts. Bare bones production.
See it if You work in research or are interested in the ethics of research.
Don't see it if If you're an actual researcher, it's a bit stressful! But that doesn't mean it wasn't worth seeing.
See it if you like stories that relate well to current ethical issues and want to support a good cast in a black box production well lit and staged.
Don't see it if you do not like hearing or learning of research topics and the issues that are faced through interactions among professors and students.
See it if You want a window into the lives, emotions and ethical conflicts of two women scientists who hope to save a small part of this world.
Don't see it if You don't believe that scientific curiosity and honesty still have value in our society.
See it if I found the show very absorbing from start to finish as it is about a common topic- misrepresenting for personal gain which is an epidemic
Don't see it if If ethics are not your thing and it makes u uncomfortable then pass thus up
See it if want to see some excellent performers in a tense and true feeling conflict that builds to a truly great climactic (or pre climax) scene.
Don't see it if you don't like black box theater, mind some issues with the science, and mind a long resolution or letting the heroines off the hook
