The translation of The Bee In Me was sponsored by Goethe-Institut.
One ordinary boy living an ordinary life.
Every day the same: parents still asleep, late again for school, can't find his clean trousers.
But today is different. Today is a game. Today he has wings.
Fly out of your room. Congratulations! Level two.
Get dressed, find breakfast, don't wake your parents, get to school, reach level three, keep going …
Don't get flattened … Level four …
Rachel Bagshaw directs the UK premiere of The Bee In Me, written by one of Germany's most exciting contemporary writers.
Full of warmth and sorrow, this dreamlike, kaleidoscopic play resonates with the energy of a child and perfectly expresses the power of our imagination to set us free.
