Why See A Taste of Honey?
Don't Miss Era-Defining Drama A Taste Of Honey
Following its critically acclaimed UK-wide tour, English playwright Shelagh Delaney's career-defining dramedy returns to the West End for the first time in six decades. A rivetingly real depiction of Northern poverty in the 1950s, the was revolutionary work revitalised British theatre at the time thanks to its courageous examination of class, gender, race and sexual orientation in modern Britain.
The aboo-breaking play deals with the stigma of racism and single motherhood in post-war Salford. A middle-aged mother runs off with a used-car salesman, whilst her 16-year old daughter is abandoned by her black sailor lover, pregnant and alone. A kindly art student takes over the role of surrogate father but when he misguidedly sends for the errant mother, their cosy life unravels fast.
