“The Bookbinder’s Tale”
Tickets on sale now for the World Premiere!

 

We are pleased to announce our second play at The Hive Collaborative will be “The Bookbinder’s Tale,” written by Bo Wilson. The play is directed by Diedra Celeste Miranda and is produced by Ken Agle & Dennis Agle of The Hive Collaborative. It stars Mariah Bowles, Jonathan Fifield, and Benjamin Hyde.

“The Bookbinder’s Tale” is a love triangle that travels in and out of its three characters’ fables, seen through one another’s eyes. Circumstances that seemed set become fluid, and futures shift with startling speed. By turns funny, breathtaking, and touching, it invites us to return to Story – our oldest and best home. Suitable for all audiences, but recommended for ages 16+. Approximate running time: 1 hour 45 minutes. Thursdays through Saturdays, 9/28/2018 to 10/27/2018, 7:30 pm. 

Once upon a time, at a Prominent University, a young woman wanted to help people see their lives as stories they tell themselves and each other.

Once upon a time, at the same Prominent University, the chair of its English department, who was also the young woman’s fiancé, wanted to indulge her.

Once upon a time, at (yes), a cheerful and charming Italian bookbinder thought the young woman’s story and his own might become a single saga.

Continuity Problems

We had 20 minutes between meetings on Thursday. Could we shoot our call for submissions video in a 20-minute window? Ken said we should go for it. We got close, but then people started showing up for our 4 pm meeting, so we had to pull the plug, three lines shy of our...
