So, what’s "home"? As the era of post-Brexit Britain looms large, that question has never been more pertinent... That’s the question Ana, a young Croatian woman, poses as she settles in the UK.
Ana has been on a journey. Croatian born, she’s 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.
Pepper & Honey is timed to perfection to deliver a perfect Croatian pepper biscuit, baked live with the help of the audience.

incredibly poignant ... a beautifully written story which flows fantastically from one perspective to the next. A story of new beginnings, loss, and the sharing of cultures
