“The team working on the production is a highly international blend of people.”
WHO: Malou Olander, Producer
WHAT: “Honey, a freelance journalist and single mother of four (and a half) seeks control, agency, confirmation and solvency from her rebellious daughter, disappointed mother, skeptical friends and imperfect men. Three (or four) therapists have so far failed to help her, so it’s time to try a different kind of talking cure. Honey must tell her story to find out how it ends and where it begins. Will she find what she’s looking for, whatever that is? Honey is a comedic one-woman show from Finland featuring Scottish actress Sarah McCardie embodying eleven triumphantly dysfunctional characters in one hour, precisely.”
WHERE: ZOO Playground – Playground 1 (Venue 186)

Tell us about your show.
Honey is a play written by the Finnish playwright Tove Appelgren and produced by the Finnish company Ace-Production. The play had it’s Finnish premier at Åbo Svenska Theater in Turku in 2018. The play was then translated to English and the idea of taking it to the Fringe emerged. The team working on the production is a highly international blend of people: the playwright and the production company is Finnish, the actress is Scottish, the director is British and the Sound and Light designer/manager is Spanish. After the Fringe we hope to get a tour with the show in the UK and to sell the rights internationally.
