A compelling play which tells the story of dying bees, healing herbs and the human need for friendship is coming St George's Theatre.
The Honey Man, which comes to Great Yarmouth at 7.30pm on Tuesday, March 10, is described as a funny and moving story of growing up and growing old.
The Honey Man is ageing West Indian recluse who shuns the modern world and contents himself with saving bees, nurturing plants and concocting herbal remedies in a derelict cottage somewhere on the edge of rural England.
Misty is the fiery, apparently self-‐centered, weed-smoking teenage daughter from hell. Rebelling against her aristocratic family heritage and preoccupied by her parents' divorce, she Skypes and texts her way through her relationships, full of anger and anxiety as she contemplates an uncertain future.
One summer their lives collide leading to an unlikely friendship.
