TU Theatre Presents "As Bees in Honey Drown"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, OK – On today's edition of our show we speak with Erin McLaine, a Los Angeles-based producer, playwright, and director who is currently serving as an adjunct professor in the TU Theatre Department. McLaine is also the director of a new production of the play, "As Bees in Honey Drown," which TU Theatre will be staging in Kendall Hall (on the TU campus) from tonight (December 1st) through Sunday afternoon (the 4th). This is a comic play about the perils of showbiz and/or romance and/or success --- and The New York Times once called it "a delicious souffl of a satire . . . [and an] extremely entertaining fable for an age that always chooses image over substance." As McLaine tells us on today's ST, the young playwright who functions as the hero of this comedy actually has a lot in common with Douglas Carter Beane, the American playwright and screenwriter who wrote "As Bees in Honey Drown" in the late 1990s.
