Stage Directions and Their Meanings
Plot
Character Relationships
Settings and their Meanings
Scene 1:
Tim is at the honey spot; he crouches behind a bush when Peggy comes, she has arrived home from her regular ballet class and she sees him trying to hid behind a bush, wanting not to be seen from her.
The meaning of this is that shows Tim has a shy personality and is anxious to see her. Once Peggy has found him he is angry and wants her to go away from his personal space. Peggy shows that she isn’t afraid to speak to people she hasn’t met before.
Scene 6:
Peggy has arranged for the Winallis to come over to her house for a dance rehearsal. Her dad, the forestry ranger is reluctant about letting a family that he hasn’t met before into his house, but he has no choice to object against her. When the Winalli family arrive at the ranger’s house William hangs back around obviously not wanting to go in.
The meaning of this scene is that Peggy’s dad doesn’t trust certain people and Peggy thinks that he is a racist. William also isn’t very sure about entering her home and stays behind until he is made to go inside by his auntie this shows that he is unsure about Peggy and her dad, the forestry ranger.

Stage Directions and Their Meanings
Scene 7:
William is sitting down making his new didgeridoo that he is planning to sell. He hears a knock on the door and he sees the ranger entering and he hides the didgeridoo under something and pretends to have always been sharpening his axe. The ranger greets him and glances around the house, looking for anything that could say that they had been cutting down trees. He asks William what was the need for him to be sharpening his axe and when he doesn’t answer straight away the ranger thinks that he was cutting down trees. William tells the ranger the ranger about a poem which is about respecting the land and giving the children names of animals, trees rocks (kangaroo, possum native cat etc.) William says that it wasn’t their people who ruined the land. Also tell him to change his mind and his heart about protecting the forest.
The meaning of this scene is that William wants the ranger to change the way that he feels about Williams family and to not judge people when you first look at them. At the end of this the ranger acknowledges this and asks William what is his idea for saving to forest, after William tells him the poem and the ranger takes his word seriously.
Stage Directions and Their Meanings
Scene 9:
Peggy feels depressed while she is coming home from school because the day before there dance rehearsal didn’t go very well and her dad is still in hospital recovering from the snake bite. Tim sees he and they talk. Tim asks her if she is still continuing with her dance, and she tells him that she is giving up on dancing. Tim is annoyed and tell Peggy that she is week when something gets too hard for her. Peggy realises what Tim is saying and kisses him. After this Tim arranges a time they should meet at the honey spot for a dance.
The meaning of this scene is that Peggy thinks she has to give up when the dance rehearsal doesn’t go well. Tim feels as though this is wrong and persuades Peggy to keep going with the dance. This shows that Tim believes in Peggy and wants her to submit something good for her scholarship and he knows that having aboriginal cultural dancing as well as Peggy’s ballet will have a good outcome in the end.
“Honey Spot" is a play written by Jack Davis. The play is about the friendship between and Aboriginal boy, Tim Winalli, and a white girl, Peggy Summers. “Honey Spot” focuses on racism. Peggy and Tim meet in the forest, Tim holding honey. Peggy is curious to know where he got the honey from as you can’t cut down trees in the state forest. They start talking to each other and become friend. Tim’s family and Peggy become friendly, but Peggy’s dad doesn’t want Peggy to hang around them.
Plot
Peggy is a ballerina and for her scholarship she asks the Winalli’s to help her with it. Peggy’s dad knows about it but still worries that his daughter will be in danger, however, the Winalli’s are her friends and are excited to help her with the dance.
Tim’s cousin William plays the digeridoo, made from wood that he got from the state forest, so, they often rehearse at the “honey spot”, the place where Tim and Peggy first met so that the ranger doesn’t find them.
During one of the practices, the ranger comes and is telling them off when he gets bitten by a snake. Tim and William immediately know what to do to get him to the hospital. After that, the ranger sees the Winallis differently and he treats them with respect.
