Staging a tale of two cultures

A MAGICAL tale of two cultures and an unlikely friendship will take to the stage in Pegswood.

Pegswood Community Project will play host to The Honey Man, by Tyrone Huggins.

The play tells the absorbing story of the unlikely friendship that develops one summer between 15-year-old schoolgirl Misty and ‘the honey man’, an ancient Afro-Caribbean man who has taken up residence in a derelict cottage at the edge of her picture-postcard English village.

It follows a tale of growing up and growing old, of individual responsibility and shared history, of dying bees, healing herbs and a little magic.

The production is being presented by New Perspectives and Derby LIVE through the Highlights Rural Touring Scheme, which brings music, drama and workshops to village halls and community venues across Northumberland.

The play can be seen in Pegswood on Saturday, at 7pm.

Tickets cost £6.50 for adults, £4 for children, £4.50 concessions and £16 for a family. They are available from the venue in Longhirst Road on 01670 512185.
