In a quiet town in snowy New Hampshire, one piece of gossip causes quite a stir. In Christmas at The Three Bees, rumor of a distinguished visitor makes The Three Bees Inn & Bookshop a bustling place on this December day. The owners, Bethany and her brother Luke, find their little place flooded with friends and guests of all kinds, some expected, others not. The prickly Mounce family seems immune to kindness, and the enigmatic stranger named Nick is suspected of dark designs.

In both cases Luke steps in to do what good he can, while Bethany prepares for the arrival of their prestigious visitor. Between dissatisfied guests, family tension, and a problematic snowfall, however, this day does not turn out as planned. Bethany and Luke must reconsider their ideas of hospitality and relationship if they hope to resolve the conflict around them.

The play has a cast of 12 characters and a running time of about 100 minutes. Check out our Christmas at The Three Bees Pinterest board to view photos from past performances, and you can watch a trailer for the play on our YouTube channel!
