Taste of Honey, Shelagh Delaney’s career-defining play, is coming to Salford 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 (Oliver!, 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.
