A patchwork of life in the Welsh mountains: there is magic at work here in this lush and hilly landscape as wonderful as any bees waggle dance. Honey weaves together the stories of a family in tatters - a tattoo artist, an autistic boy, his mother in the valley, his father away at war, and those that want to love them. This is not a story of war, but of community and of all those communities that are breaking down. But woven throughout is a quilt, stitched with hopes and dreams, pieced together for the boy with autism who loves to dance. With a beautiful backdrop of specially written folk music you will taste the honey, feel the richness of the hills and hear the music that fills these hearts.
Honey forms the third play in The Earth Mind Trilogy, alongside The Slip and Fish Head. All three plays tell stories that focus on mental well-being and our changing environment. Honey’s sister plays have received five star reviews and consistently high levels of audience feedback.
Feels completely fresh and of the now. I adored it and audiences should swarm to see it. William Stafford (Bum on a Seat)

A charming and sensitive Welsh work Remote Goat
This is a small tale, lyrically told and beautifully performed, with a big message. Hereford Times
Honey was beautiful, graceful, thoughtful ... I feel creatively nourished! KW (Audience)
The play was beautiful and well paced ...fluid and musical, the story dripped into my ears, seeking out nooks and crannies, to linger there for days to come. AS (Audience)
We were blown away by the play and how it revealed the complexity of relationships...the acting was superb! GL (Audience)
A great show! I was particularly impressed by the very real and honest representation of autism. NR (Audience)
