Age of Bees


A dearth of bees marks a troubled time; bees' disappearance foretells ecological turmoil and eventual collapse. In Tira Palmquist's Age of Bees, it's the year 2098 and a group of people are trying to rebuild life at an agricultural compound. Mel, a young woman seeking sanctuary, may be forced to bear a child for the volatile patriarch -- unless she finds a way out with Jonathan, the bright and kind field researcher attempting to find glimmers of life in this desolate world. Tesseract Theatre Company brings Palmquist's moving show to life.
