A Taste of Honey - 2019 - West End History , Info & More

Trafalgar Theatre (Formally Trafalgar Studio 1)
14 Whitehall, Westminster, London SW1A 2DY, United Kingdom London

A Taste of Honey offers an explosive celebration of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world, against the backdrop of working-class life in post-war Salford.

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

BWW Review: A TASTE OF HONEY, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - October 9, 2019

Shelagh Delaney was known for putting working class women centre-stage. It is remarkable to think that she was only 19 when she penned A Taste Of Honey, a bleak depiction of working class life in post-war Britain where people did not live, but simply tried to exist. It is even more significant that she was a young, uneducated, Northern woman succeeding in a theatrical world that was run for and by an educated elite of men. The National Theatre's excellent 2014 version now returns for a national tour before transferring to the Trafalgar Studios next year.


A Taste of Honey has had 4 productions including Broadway which opened in 1960, Broadway which opened in 1981, Broadway which opened in 1981 and West End which opened in 2019.
