Enjoyed the Great British Bake Off? Then you’ll love this show which tackles 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 and with the help of the audience.
The live baking process is intertwined with a story of what it’s like to settle in a different country, 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.
“A very human, and at times, challenging story about what divides and unites us. Exquisitely acted and faultless production.” David Lane, Rural touring promoter
Created by Notnow Collective, a Birmingham-based company led by two female Croatian theatre-makers, and written by the company’s co-founder Kristina Gavran.
