Study Guide: “The Secret Life of Bees”
In this award-winning adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd’s New York Times bestseller, a young girl’s search for the truth about her mother leads her to three beekeeping sisters and the real meaning of family. Lily’s story—including her journey of self-discovery during the turbulent Civil Rights Era—is masterfully told in this one-woman performance from American Place Theater, the same acclaimed company behind last season’s presentation of The Kite Runner.
It’s a simple story but, without warning, it gets into your chest and wraps around your heart.”
—Denise Willbanks, American Place Theater
