Win two tickets to see ‘A Taste of Honey’ at the Theatre Royal Bath

Published by .


A Taste of Honey, Shelagh Delaney’s career defining play, is set to appear at the Theatre Royal Bath from Monday 28th October to Saturday 2nd November as part of a nationwide tour staged by the National Theatre.

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 The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse – which also features a live on stage band.

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 set-up unravels.

This British classic is an exhilarating depiction of working-class life in post-war Salford. 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.
