A young British man’s search for his father in a small Nigerian village is the centre of a funny and emotional play coming to Maldon.

Eastern Angles Theatre Company will perform Palm Wine and Stout, a new production written by acclaimed poet and playwright Segun Lee-French.

The story about Taiye, who is on a quest to find out more about his African heritage, draws some fascinating parallels with English village life.

Along the way, he experiences both the vibrant bustle of modern Nigerian city 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 host of spiritual ancestors.

See it at Maldon Town Hall on Market Hill at 7.30pm on March 13. Tickets £12.

Or it will be at Purleigh Village Hall on April 11 at 7.30pm. Tickets £10.50.
