Palm Wine & Stout

Eastern Angles will be coming to Orford again this year, bringing their production of Palm Wine and Stout to the Town Hall at 7.30pm on Saturday 26 April 2014.

Written by acclaimed poet, composer and playwright Segun Lee-French, Palm Wine and Stout is a funny and emotional play based on the writer’s own visit back to a small Nigerian village in search of his father. The story, which focuses on Taiye, a young British man on a quest to find out more about his African heritage, draws some fascinating parallels with English village life.

Along the way Taiye experiences both the vibrant bustle of modern Nigerian life and the mysterious rituals of rural African villagers. With half-brother Femi as his guide, Taiye’s journey becomes a challenging culture clash incorporating music, dance and a host of spiritual ancestors.

Eastern Angles productions in the past have been enjoyed by many residents, and I hope that you will be able to come to this latest production.

Tickets are £8 and are available from the Town Hall office (tel 01394 459172) or from Friends Garage.
