The Bee

Director Hideki Noda Starring
  • Tony Bell
  • Kathryn Hunter
  • Hideki Noda
  • Glyn Pritchard
    Soho Theatre

    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.

    The play returned to Soho Theatre in 2012 for a second run as part of an International tour which went to New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
