Are you a queen or one of the worker bees?
Twenty-five years into the future: in desperate need of shelter, a pair of homeless women discover themselves forging an unlikely alliance. In an economy turned on its head, the duo – one deaf, the other pregnant and undocumented – find work in a questionable warehouse intent on preying upon its roustabouts. This cohort of migrants are conditioned to believe the commodities they package hold more value than their own lives. Devising a hive may be their only hope for survival.
Inspired by John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, the premiere of SWARM CELL – written by Gabriel Rivas Gomez and directed by Robert Castro – asserts a brave new world of womanhood and identity.
