An Exeter Northcott Theatre production
The Honey Man
by Tyrone Huggins
Post-show Discussion: Tue 29 June
With Director Alix Harris and Exeter Northcott’s Artistic Director Daniel Buckroyd.
Directed by Alix Harris
The absorbing tale of an unlikely friendship that develops between an ageing West Indian recluse, living in a derelict cottage and tending his bees at the edge of a picture-postcard English village, and Misty, the fiery, sixteen year old heir to the nearby manor house, who bursts into his life one summer and turns his world upside down.
It’s a story of growing up and growing old, of individual responsibility and shared history, of two worlds joined by a painting, and (just possibly) a little magic.
“You don’t always have to leave to change a thing. Sometimes the best way is to stay and change things where you is.”
The performance is sold on a socially-distanced basis.
Theatre is best enjoyed with family and friends. When you look at the seating plan to book your tickets for this show, you will notice that there are gaps between available seats to accommodate social distancing, but you will be able to enjoy the show with your bubble. To make sure that social distancing is adhered to across the auditorium, you will only be able to book all of the seats within a ‘bubble’. If your required bubble size is not available (including larger groups!), or you have any access needs, please get in touch with us on 01392 72 63 63 (Tue-Sat 10am-2pm) or via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
