Eight-year-old Flora has lived in six foster homes since the age of ﬁve. One day Flora meets Bee and their budding friendship changes everything. A humorous and heartwarming tale of foster care, the importance of the hive and the power of friendship.
Although many plays about foster care exist for grades 5+, our research shows that FLORA MEETS A BEE may just be the ﬁrst such play created speciﬁcally for grades K-3. It’s also our first bilingual FEST play!
35 minutes, including 5-minute pre-show and 5-minute post-show discussions
Directed by Jerry Rapier | Designed by Arika Shockmel
With Ariana Broumas Farber as Flora and Brenda Hattingh as Bee
(secondary cast: Isabella Reeder as Flora and Darby Mest as Bee)
