Schenectady Civic Players Present “As Bees in Honey Drown” [Berkshire on Stage]

December 1st, 2017, 2:00 pm by Sara

The second play of Schenectady Civic Players‘ 90th anniversary season, As Bees in Honey Drown by Douglas Carter Beane and directed by Mark Stephens, opens on tonight (Friday, December 1) and runs through Sunday, December 10 at its 12 South Church Street Playhouse in Schenectady’s historic Stockade district.

In Beane’s satirical comedy, called “a delicious souffle of satire” by The New York Times, Evan Wyler (Knathan MacKenzie-Roy) has just finished a photo shoot. No, he’s not a super model, just a twenty-something New York writer savoring the success of his debut novel. Evan captures the attention of Alexa Vere de Vere (Cristine M. Loffredo), a glamorous woman of mystery who’s made the world of celebrity her home. In fact, it’s her religion. She wants Evan to write the screenplay of her life story. But, Alexa vanishes, leaving him to foot the bill for all the dinners and Armani suits they’ve gone through. Trying to find Alexa, Evan discovers a chain of people who have fallen under her spell and acted as her meal ticket.
