By Andrea Green.
Cast: 1m., 5w. (1 female character is a walk-on, having no dialogue. The one male character is optional.) Like Bees to Honey is an engaging, poetic, and highly stylized ensemble piece. This unconventional, intimate play introduces us to five multiethnic women whose lives and backgrounds seem strikingly different but whose secret lives of addiction are all too hauntingly similar. Green reveals the secret lives of these women as they struggle with substance abuse. On their journey to recovery, they each see themselves reflected in the teenage girl who is stumbling down a path they recognize as their own. This contemporary yet timeless look at women and addiction explores the seduction of alcohol and drugs and ends with the ritual lighting of a candle "for all our sisters who are not with us tonight so you may find your way home." Single unit set. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
