Lloyd Beckman, Beekeeper

Lloyd Beckmann, Beekeeper

By Tim Stitz & Kelly Somes

Lloyd cordially invites you into his granny flat to get some grub, wet your whistle and learn a thing or two about life, the land and beekeeping.

A grandfather, his home, the smells and tastes of childhood create a rich landscape for family history to be told. Based on a true story, Lloyd Beckmann, Beekeeper is the tale of a Queensland battler as told through his grandson’s eyes. Tracing family history, inheritance and the ripening of age. This acclaimed, Green Room nominated production arrives in Sydney after sell-out seasons at La Mama and the Canberra Theatre Centre

“A wonderful piece of theatre” - THE SUNDAY AGE

“If it has a return season at any time, I wholeheartedly urge you to see it.”
- Richard Watts, MAN ABOUT TOWN

“…a moving portrait…hurry up and see for yourself” – John Bailey, THE SUNDAY AGE
