The Hive Theatre dares to bring you the entire lifespan of the world’s largest country! The mysteries of Lenin’s tomb! The secret of Stalin’s death! The spying techniques of the KGB! All shall be revealed! 100 years of history in 100 minutes! Four actors navigate between an array of juxtaposed Soviets who are living in the thick of some of the most pivotal moments of the past century. Farcical, approachable, sometimes sentimental, and always hilarious – “A Brief History” explores how similar people really are, regardless of how their regime may want them to live.

We provide affordable productions that engage audiences as participants in an immersive theatrical event. Our core values include DEVISE through collaboration with an emphasis on experimentation, EXPOSE what must be said, for those who won’t say it, and for those who refuse to hear it and ILLUMINATE our fears, because the truth is what scares us the most. The Hive co-creates by producing original works created from the ground up by the full company, reinventing the classics, and fostering the work of new and underexposed playwrights. www.thehivetheatre.com
