‘Heartwarming’ play set in Ely to be digitally premiered for free

A ‘heartwarming’ play that is set in Ely will be digitally premiered for free this month thanks to award funding from The Library Presents.

Pepper & Honey, which has been created by the Notnow Collective theatre company and planned to tour in autumn, will be streamed into people’s homes on Saturday 12 and Saturday 19 December.

With many local references, audiences will be asked to immerse themselves in Kristina Gavran’s two-part ‘live audience experience’ by preparing a sensory tray in advance of each episode.

After episode one of the play, which questions what home is and how we can uphold family traditions, viewers will be sent the recipe for the Croatian pepper and honey biscuits.

Performances on both nights start at 7pm and tickets are free. The intriguing list of ingredients will be explained to each audience member once they book a ticket.
