As Bees in Honey Drown by Douglas Carter Beane

The Canadian premiere of Douglas Carter Beane’s award-winning comedy.

Alexa Vere de Vere, the absolutely fabulous whirlwind who blows through the delightful, pointed comedy “As Bees in Honey Drown,” is a creation worthy of Isherwood, Capote, Bankhead and Tennessee Williams.

A smart and very funny vivisection of the greed for fame, glamour and the good life.
