The Hive Theatre Company, a Salt Lake City theatrical group, is gearing up for its fifth season in 2015 — which the group is billing as “the 2015 theater revolution.” The season kicks off Oct. 18 with a fund-raising “rally,” before the real productions of 2015: • “Bupkis: A Play About Nothing,” a collaboration by five playwrights and five local actors, directed by Hive founders Jared and Tiffany Greathouse.
