A Duel to the Death

North Carolina's most notorious affair of honor - the Stanly-Spaight Duel.  A young legislator goads an older statesman in a heated political contest.  The older man insults the younger.  All in public.  In newsprint.  Add the story of Sarah Rice, favored slave of the Spaights, who had a son by John Stanly.  Combine it with the knowledge and wit of writer Bill Hand and the music of Simon Spalding and you have Honour, The Musical.

This historic tale will be brought to life through original dialogue and music, as the full-length play sweeps you from the signing of the Constitution to the dispute that would lead these bitter rivals to a fight to the death on the field of honor.
