Blackeyed Theatre presents the world premiere of Michael Ashton's play directed by Adrian McDougall.

December 1944. Monowicze, one of the labour camps at Auschwitz. Amidst the desperation and inhumanity of the Holocaust, an incredible power struggle develops between Kommandant Richard Baer and one of his prisoners, Manachem Stressler, a German Jew who survives by harvesting honey from the camp's bee hives for his captors.

With Russian tanks advancing to liberate the camp, Baer's growing despair pushes both men to their limits as they seek redemption and a return to their humanity. Based on real life events, The Beekeeper is the incredible story of two men, the nature of power and the strength of the human spirit.
