A Taste of Honey Reviews
Scott Berg from London, England
FLAT, DULL AND RIDING ON (UNDESERVED) HISTORICAL LAURELS
Flat, empty and less flavour than an overchewed piece of gum. The direction fails these actors entirely - barely three jokes - of a play full of ups and downs - landed. The actors not only phoned it in - they too the receiver off the hook - the muscians seemed in purgatory having to sit there through it - and the rest seemed ready to get their paycheque and run. And I won't even begin to discuss the horrific, mis-proportioned and clumsy set design. The production fails this play entirely: Shelagh Delaney was of her time, & the play, a snapshot. The trivial forcing of a ridiculous feminist narrative kills every bit of enlightenment & joy from what should be a formidable play by an admirable female writer. Even the playbill article, hilariously suggesting that Delaney, a first timer, was denied breakfast with Beckett shows how obnoxiously misguided this is. A new NT low. I cannot BELIEVE Arts Council England keeps funding these quota-system nightmares.
