Beyond the Veil is another original production by the versatile and highly talented Mikron Theatre Company which combines humour, melodrama and song with fascinating insights into the world of bees, courtesy of Beeky Bob from TUBA (The Urban Bee Association). As the plot unfolds, the DCI (and the audience) starts to realise that the key to the mystery lies in understanding how human behaviour can mimic the complex and sometimes deadly behaviour of bees.
Mikron is theatre at its most basic – a group of four actors who, in a throwback to the days of strolling players, travel the country in a canal boat. The company’s aim is bring original and accessible theatre to non-traditional audiences by performing in venues as varied as pub gardens, museums and, in this case, Oxford Science Park’s Sadler Building. They will be performing Beyond the Veil, alternating with Don’t Shoot the Messenger (described as a “light hearted romp through five centuries of postal history”) in venues around Oxfordshire from 6th-17th August 2013. Highly recommended.
