[SANAM SHAH] (29-30) she/her/hers; Indian (from India – accented speech); An applied mathematician about to graduate from a PhD program in ecology. Can come off as mathematical and calculated in how she approaches the world but underneath is a strong woman of great passion that matches her intelligence.
[ARVIND PATEL] (Late 30s) he/him/his; Indian American; A financier from New York. A potential suitor for Sanam. Manages to teeter on the line of charming and obnoxiously over-confident in a way that actually makes us like him. His jaded outlook on the world can often find itself at odds with his kinder, more sensitive side.
Storyline: What if all the bees abandoned their Queen? In this high-stakes environmental drama, best friends Sanam and Ariel, PhD candidates from India and the U.S., research the collapse of bee colonies world-wide, dreaming they might collapse the glass ceiling of academia. When a flaw emerges in their research, their friendship, careers, and even an arranged marriage are at risk. With ecological disaster on the horizon, should they withdraw their findings or compromise them to protect the planet?
Note from the Director, Jeffrey Lo: “We will collectively create a rehearsal room that welcomes a collaborative process from all artists involved. I believe in working in an environment where artists feel empowered to try any and all ideas possible as we work to finesse and develop an honest and impactful production. I look forward to meeting actors who are excited by a collaborative environment.”
