by Tyler Peterson - Jan 15, 2016

Greenway Court Theatre Presents the World Premiere of SWARM CELL, written by Gabriel Rivas Gomez (Chasing Monsters, Scar Tissue, Thisability), directed by Robert Castro (Se Llama Cristina, Before the Revolution). Written by Gabriel Rivas Gomez, with contributions from Los Angeles' Fairfax High School. Inspired by John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, SWARM CELL asserts a brave new world of womanhood and Identity. Twenty-five years into the future, in desperate need of shelter, a pair of homeless women discover themselves forging an unlikely alliance. In an economy turned on its head, the duo - one deaf, the other pregnant and undocumented - find work in a questionable warehouse intent on preying upon its roustabouts. This cohort of migrants are conditioned to believe the commodities they package hold more value than their own lives. Devising a hive may be their only hope for survival. Are you a queen or one of the worker bees?
