Sponsored by the New Bern Historical Society, Honour, The Musical, an original telling of the Stanly-Spaight duel written by Bill Hand with music by Simon Spalding. This historic tale will be brought to life as the full-length musical 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.
It’s 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.
