Salaryman Ido arrives home from an ordinary day at work to find it barricaded. He discovers that his wife and son are held hostage by an escapee from a nearby prison. The policemen are apathetic, the TV reporters are grating. As pressure mounts and time runs out, Ido embarks on a journey of revenge that will change his family forever…

The Bee is a macabre psychological thriller about ordinary individuals who – when pushed to their limits by society – find strength through violence and absurdity. What happens when victims become aggressors, the weak become powerful, and the watcher becomes the watched? Who should take responsibility?

Malaysian premiere. Based on a 70s short story by Yasutaka Tsutsui and inspired by the 9/11 incident. The Bee premiered in London in 2006, followed by Japan the year after. Featuring Amanda Ang, Jonathan Chew, Razif Hashim, Jad Hidhir, Alfred Loh, Veshalini Naidu, Bella Rahim and Nabil Zakaria. Stage managed by Asher Au, assisted by Ung Zhee Nedd. Assistant directed and dramaturged by Arief Hamizan and Esther Liew. Directed and designed by Kelvin Wong.
