“Essential viewing… There is hope and beauty to be found in the The Beekeeper of Aleppo”
“Sparklingly assured… solid, impressive show… anchored in strong performances from a uniformly excellent ensemble cast.”
Martin Dodd for UK Productions Ltd proudly presents the Nottingham Playhouse production of THE BEEEKEEPER OF ALLEPO
‘I was scared of the bees at first, but now, they make me feel alive. They are like a society in complete harmony with itself. Not like people at all, but maybe what people have the potential to be’
Nuri is a beekeeper, his wife, Afra, an artist. They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo – until the unthinkable happens. When all they care for is destroyed by war, they are forced to escape. On their terrifying journey, they must face the pain of their own unbearable loss alongside incredible danger. Above all, they must journey to find each other again. This compassionate and beautiful play is a story o f connection – between friends, families, and strangers.
