HoneyBee is a new one-woman play, which combines spoken word, physical theatre, stand-up comedy and a thumping festival-driven soundtrack.

Written by the award-winning poet Eleanor Dillon-Reams and directed by Jess Tucker-Boyd, this marathon feat of a show tells the story of Kate, as she flits and stumbles through her twenties fuelled on highs and hedonism. Having had her world turned upside down at a festival, Kate finds herself on a journey to rediscover her identity and self-worth.

Holding nothing back, and flipping the bird to the patriarchy, Kate’s story represents a generation’s search for purpose and the need to dance in the face of adversity.

It’s Fleabag meets Kate Tempest with a dash of dirty bass.

"Dillon-Reams is kind and careful in her storytelling, and so we dress up with her, laugh with her, and worry when it all goes wrong." (The Guardian)

"A sparkly, well-rounded piece of theatre" ★★★★ (Broadway Baby)
