The Nottingham Playhouse brings Christy Lefteri’s international number-one bestseller The Beekeeper of Aleppo to The Lowry later this month.

Winner of the Aspen Words Award, runner-up in the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and a Times bestseller, Nesrin Alrefaai and Matthew Spangler present the world premiere of their stage adaptation of the acclaimed tale from Tue 18 Apr – Sat 22 Apr.

The story follows beekeeper Nuri and his wife and artist Afra, a couple who once lived a simple, joyful life in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo — until the unthinkable happens. When all the couple cares for is destroyed by war, Nuri and Afra are forced to escape, leading them on a torturous journey in which they must face the pain of unbearable loss.

‘Sparklingly assured… solid, impressive show… anchored in strong performances from a uniformly excellent ensemble cast.’ – The Telegraph

‘Essential viewing… There is hope and beauty to be found in the The Beekeeper of Aleppo’ – Broadway World

The stunning production will be directed by Olivier Award-winning Miranda Cromwell (Death of a Salesman).
