There are two types of people. The ones who move away. And the ones who stay and wait...
Enjoyed the Great British Bake Off? Then you will love this show! We want to tackle your senses and your imagination. Pepper and Honey is a new play about two women questioning the meaning of home. The play is timed to perfection in order to deliver a perfect Croatian pepper biscuit, baked live in front of and with the help of the audience.
The live baking process is intertwined with a story of what it is like to settle in a different country. Croatian born, Ana has arrived in the UK, determined to make it home. As she focuses on life in this new land, she is haunted by the voice of her Grandma - calling for her to stay true to national identity and yearning for Ana to come home. As Grandma bakes her traditional Croatian pepper biscuits (believed to bring a loved one back home), will this be enough to be reunited with her granddaughter? But what is “home” to Ana now?
Written by a Croatian playwright and performed by a Croatian actor, Pepper & Honey is a poignant, subtle and timely play about the journey of change, cultural differences, trying not to feel like a foreigner in your adopted country, and the conflict between upholding the traditions of the “old country” and embracing those of the new.
In these strange new times, join us for a heart-warming performance that says more now than ever about the need for tolerance and the power of human connection, even over distance.
“A very human, and at times, challenging story about what divides and unites us. Exquisitely acted and faultless production” - David Lane, Rural touring promoter
