Bumbled Bere Island

Bumbled | Whiddy Island | West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival 24

“Bumbled” follows Pascal, an Irish honeybee, as he embarks on a poignant journey to tell the world about the importance of bees.

‘Life is short. Especially if you’re a bee. Not long to make honey, prop up the human food chain, and to fall in love’.

Pascal is also on a mission to save the planet, and to find true happiness with his French girlfriend, the epic Marion. All the while trying to avoid his balls exploding, his manhood falling off!

“Bumbled” presents a one person, bee-twerking, Irish slow-dancing, sex-dodging odyssey, where too late often comes sooner than you think.

The award-winning Hamell is the producing artistic director of Tir Na Theatre. Tir Na’s Productions are based in Boston USA. Their mission is to produce new and contemporary works, and to bring those productions to theaters and screens throughout Europe and the
United States.

The performance is part of the West Cork Fit-up Theatre Festival which includes performances across the West Cork islands.
