Description

HoneyBee is a new play written by the award-winning poet Eleanor Dillon-Reams, combining spoken word, dance, stand-up and a thumping festival-driven soundtrack. This marathon feat of a show tells the story of Kate, as she journeys to rediscover her identity and self-worth. Flipping the bird to the patriarchy and dancing in the face of adversity, Kate's story represents a generation's search for purpose. Performed by the writer, it's Fleabag meets Kate Tempest with a dash of dirty bass. 'Poignant and touching... Everybody should get to see it. It's that good' (Breaking-the-Fourth-Wall.com).

The energy and dynamism of this actor is tremendous. The narrative was clear and the messages at the end, tear-inducing. The only thing I might suggest is to be a little clearer/slower(?) in diction for the poetry bits because I missed some words and thus the meaning in those parts. Very much worth seeing in the windup to the Fringe. A sparkly and talented young woman with more than one strong message.

Dillon-Reams, performing her own work, is warm and engaging; she switches between fun & serious mode well, and is clearly passionate about the work she’s presenting.

I wasn’t really sure what this show was supposed to be going into it, and now that I’ve seen it, I’m not sure if I have any better an idea. HoneyBee skips gleefully between form and genre, between dance, standup and spoken word, without really landing on any long enough...

‘Oh my God, that’s my song’ Kate shouts as she storms in and raises the roof of the Rose Theatre attic - the first clue that we, the audience, are in for a good night. Millennial frustration masked and blinde...

At once beautifully, intricately wrought and yet entirely honest, ‘HoneyBee’ has a truth at its pulsing heart that you cannot help but be moved by. Billed as “Fleabag meets Kate Tempest”, it is written and performed by the brilliantly talented Eleanor Dillon-Reams. We follow a young woman through the hedonistic...
