CO PRODUCED BY CoHo Productions & the Lower East Side Shakespeare Company.
A new-work created by Melody Erfani & written by Sean Michael Welch.
The Lower East Side Shakespeare Company is excited to announce that our new work BEE, developed in 2017 at the HB Residency, with a run at HB Studio Playwrights Theatre Stage in 2018 will be premiering on the West Coast at Portland, OR.
APRIL 24 – MAY 16, 2020
BEE, a story created by Melody Erfani (our founder) and written by Sean Michael Welch, focuses on the life & strength of Melody's Iranian Grandmother. It also weaves that tale with refugee stories with the aim to help bridge the growing cultural gap that contributes to discrimination.
We thank HB Studio, The Barns Art Collective, and The Allen Davis Playwriting Lab for their support in the artistic development of this work.
