The Secret Life of Bees
In this New York Times bestseller set during the Civil Rights Movement, a young girl's search for the truth about her mother leads her to three beekeeping sisters and the discovery of the real meaning of family. This Literature to Life® Award-winning one person production features a verbatim performance from the novel.
This masterful actress fully embodies the young protagonist, Lily, and brings us on her very personal journey for self. Audience members will feel as if the story is being told to them alone and yet somehow it remains a community experience.
Linked with this performance is The Z’s pre-performance book club discussion of The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. 6PM. Free and open to the public. www.zeiterion.org for further info
