Event 2018: The Hive – The Bookbinder’s Tale

Once upon a time, at a Prominent University, a young woman wanted to help people see their lives as stories they tell themselves and each other. Once upon a time, at the same Prominent University, the chair of its English department, who was also the young woman’s fiancé, wanted to indulge her. Once upon a time, at (yes) a Prominent University, a cheerful and charming Italian bookbinder thought the young woman’s story and his own might become a single saga.

The Bookbinder’s Tale is a love triangle that travels in and out of its three characters’ fables, seen through one another’s eyes. Circumstances that seemed set become fluid, and futures shift with startling speed. By turns funny, breathtaking, and touching, it invites us to return to Story – our oldest and best home. Suitable for all audiences, but is recommended for ages 16+. The lead is BYU Acting graduate Mariah Bowles. Go ahead and support her in the show’s final weekend at the Hive. For more information about showtimes and tickets, click here.
