The Bee

Written by Hideki Noda and Birkbeck Lecturer Colin Teevan.


When an ordinary office worker returns home to find his wife and child kidnapped, he’s drawn into a dark and dangerous game of revenge where manga comic-strip frenzy turns into an absurd and ferocious nightmare.


First performed at Soho Theatre in 2006, and then making a clean sweep of all major theatre awards in Tokyo, The Bee now comes back to Soho following a New York run with original Olivier Award winning star Kathryn Hunter and Japanese theatre legend Hideki Noda.


Transferring from New York, on its way to Hong Kong and back to Tokyo – don’t miss the opportunity to see this play based on the short story Plucking At Each Other written by Yasutaka Tsutsui.


Originally produced by NODA-MAP and Soho Theatre in 2006.
