About A Taste of Honey

“It’s chaotic – a bit of love, a bit of lust and there you are. We don’t ask for life, we have it thrust upon us.”

A Taste of Honey, Shelagh Delaney’s career defining play, is coming to Edinburgh this Autumn. This British classic is an exhilarating depiction of working-class life in post-war Salford.

Bijan Sheibani (Barber Shop Chronicles) directs Jodie Prenger (One Man, Two Guvnors, Abigail’s Party) as Helen in this new production from The National Theatre, producers of War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

When her mother Helen runs off with a car salesman, feisty teenager Jo takes up with Jimmy, a sailor who promises to marry her, before he heads for the seas. Art student Geoff moves in and assumes the role of surrogate parent until, misguidedly, he sends for Helen and their unconventional setup unravels.

Written by Shelagh Delaney when she was nineteen, A Taste of Honey is one of the great taboo-breaking plays of the 1950s, offering an explosive celebration of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world.

Please note: The Monday performance has been cancelled due to production schedule changes. All customers affected are being contacted.
