BWW Review: ACTLab and Pratidhwani's QUEEN Examines the Ethics of Bee Science Photo BWW Review: ACTLab and Pratidhwani's QUEEN Examines the Ethics of Bee Science
by Jay Irwin - Aug 10, 2018

I've never been a fan of bees, in fact they terrify me. So, I found it a little ironic that the day I'm supposed to go see a play about bees, Madhuri Shekar's 'Queen' from ACTLab and Pratidhwani, that one of the little bastards decides to up and sting me for no reason. Sure, they're important for our ecosystem and without them we would end up with severe food shortages, but they don't need to be such jerks about it. And that's the central conceit of Shekar's play (their place in the ecosystem, not them stinging me). And while the play was intriguing, at times the actors didn't all seem to be a part of the same play, at least not at the same time.
