About the Show
A new musical based on the bestselling novel exploring the interracial landscape of the civil rights era in the American South.
Set in 1964 in Sylvan, South Carolina, 'The Secret Life of Bees' tells the story of Lily Melissa Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. Lily lives in a house with her abusive father and their no-nonsense maid, Rosaleen, who is fighting for the right to vote. When Rosaleen & Lily flee their small town, they seek salvation at a remote honey bee farm run by the remarkable Boatwright sisters - hoping that their past will not catch up with them.
With a book written by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, music by 'Spring Awakening' composer Duncan Sheik and lyrics by Susan Birkenhead, The Secret Life of Bees is directed by Whitney White and based on Sue Monk Kidd's New York Times bestselling fiction novel.
