As Bees in Honey Drown

By Douglas Carter Beane

Directed by Steve Noll

"As Bees in Honey Drown" is a dark comedy about fame, fortune, betrayal and revenge, set in hedonistic 1990s New York City.

Evan is a young writer who has just published his first book to great critical acclaim, but low sales. When socialite Alexa Ver De Vere hires him to write her biography, Evan is drawn into a world of fame, fortune and desire. But Alexa has her own dark secret that will cause Evan to seek out revenge on her.
