Felix Humble, theoretical physicist, has left Cambridge and his search for a unified “Theory of Everything” to attend his beekeeper father's funeral–but finds himself in the middle of a hornet's nest instead. His overbearing mother Flora has exiled the bees, and taken the boorish next-door neighbor as her lover. Add a mousey family friend, a dutiful gardener, and a visitor from his own romantic past, and like the bees, Felix bumbles to find order amid the chaos. Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Award, the Critics' Circle Best New Play Award and the People's Choice Best New Play Award.
