Queen

Getting to record a hive of bees at the Huneebee Project was just the start of an incredible sound design process! Our team had a blast composing & sound designing this co-production by Long Wharf Theater & NAATCO's Inaugural Production of the NAATCO National Partnership Project!

PhD candidates Sanam and Ariel have spent the better part of the last decade exhaustively researching vanishing bee populations across the globe. Just as these close friends are about to publish a career-defining paper, Sanam stumbles upon an error in their calculations, which could cause catastrophic damage to their reputations, careers, and friendship. Now, Sanam is confronted with an impossible choice: look the other way or stand by her principles and accept the consequences?
