Pepper & Honey
TICKETS: Adult £14.50 | Child/Cons £8.50
So, what is “home”? 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?
Pepper & Honey is timed to perfection to deliver a perfect Croatian pepper biscuit, baked live during the show.
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.

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.”
“A warm and gentle show, it captures the transient and precarious nature of life as an immigrant in the UK in the current climate”
“Flows fantastically from one perspective to the next. A story of new beginnings, loss, and the sharing of cultures.”
“A beautifully written story. There was not a dry eye in the house by the end”
