    Uncanny adventure. A demolition site. Using lyrical language to explore lost homes, new storms and friendly cryptics. Reluctant Megacorp conservationist and single mum Ria (she/her) has been called in to sort a hive. It's halting work on a new housing development and messing up the bottom line. Plus it’s the worst possible timing because Ria's teenage kid Salve (they/them) was just suspended for unrepentant thievery following the loss of Nan; the third-pillar of their family. But when they arrive, cagey site manager Craig (he/him) hints at something more...unusual.

    More sinister. 

    From the director of ‘Colossal’, Winner Best Show of the Edinburgh Fringe 2022, comes HIVE, a queer, magical, sci-fi adventure exploring family, shared memory and the meaning of home after loss.

    Originally commissioned by The Space, London for early 2023.

    Hive will be playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on the 2 – 15 August, 16.35, at the Assembly Roxy Downstairs.

    "Companies like us genuinely would not be making theatre if it was not for the ability of CPT and its team to identify artists who are worth taking a chance on."
