“IF YOU see just one lesbian hockey musical this year – it has to be this one!” That’s the intriguing advance publicity for Honeybees the Musical! – fresh from performing to sell-out audiences in Brighton, and coming to Eastbourne for one night only (June 17, 7.30pm) before it goes to London.
Follow the adventures of a lesbian women’s hockey team, the Brighton Honeybees, as they prepare to take on arch rivals the Hove Hornets to win the cup, get the girl and try not to get the wrong end of the (hockey) stick.
You can expect an evening of life and love, winning and losing, lesbians and drama queens, with music for everyone - including rock, pop, hip-hop, the magnificent “Lady Lager”, and even a touch of George FormBEE.
Honeybees the Musical! is a fundraiser for Allsorts Youth Project, an award-winning Brighton-based charity that supports young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, or unsure of their sexuality [www.allsortsyouth.org.uk].
