About The Beyoncé
Nodding to Queen Bey but based on the Anton Chekhov short story 'The Fiancé', 'The Beyoncé' is a razor sharp and deeply personal coming-of-age conundrum written by acclaimed playwright Eliza Bent ('Toilet Fire', 'Aloha Aloha'), “this generation's answer to Amy Sedaris: frank, weird and immensely likable” (Time Out New York). With her wedding approaching, Nadia discovers that her heart doesn’t want what it obviously should want: a decent husband and a stable family life. She instead fantasizes about running off to the bright lights of the big city, to the counterculture of self-discovery. Is this a silly daydream or a full-body call to adventure that must be answered?
