Pepper & Honey
So, what is “home”? That’s the question Ana, a young Croatian woman, poses as she settles in the UK.
Pepper & Honey is timed to perfection to deliver a perfect Croatian pepper biscuit, baked live during the show.
A warm and gentle show … evocative … Hofman nimbly shifts between the two Anas, the hopeful and “adventurous” immigrant and her tottering, black-clad old “baba” pouring her love into her pastry.” – The Stage, November 2019 ★★★★
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.
