Bees and Lions

by Sarah M. Duncan

directed by Jillian Robertson

Design by Matthew Byrd 

Sanguine Theatre Company presents the world premiere of a new play by Sarah M. Duncan. When Sean, the famous son of a multi-millionaire, crashes an employee party at one of his father’s hotels, he meets Julie, a low income hotel employee. Shortly thereafter, she agrees to go home with him, but they don’t get very far—on the way down, the elevator stops. Stuck, Julie and Sean contemplate getting help, but neither follows through. Their flirtatious, digging questions and taunts, not to mention mounting sexual tension, culminate in two startling confessions, prompting Julie to make a bold, controversial decision. Inspired by Strindberg’s Miss Julie, Bees and Lions is also about the fall of a woman—but this time when said woman falls, she takes everyone with her—some willingly–in the name of her cause. Who will be the first to get back up?
