First performed in 1958, don’t miss Shelagh Delaney’s A Taste of Honey as it returns to the West End for the first time in 60 years. Directed by Bijan Sheibani, this gritty, ground-breaking play depicts post-war working class life in the north of England and is an exhilarating portrayal of female spirit in a deprived and restless world.
Jodie Prenger plays Helen. After winning the BBC television series ‘I’d Do Anything’ to play the role of Nancy in Oliver!, Prenger has starred in a number of West End shows including Les Miserables and One Man Two Guvnors, as well as touring productions including Tell Me On a Sunday, Spamalot and Annie.
The cast is completed by Gemma Dobson as Jo, Liam Bessell, Katy Clayton, Claire Eden, Durone Stokes, Stuart Thompson and Tom Varey.
Set in post-war Salford, audiences meet Jo, a 17-year-old working class girl. When her mother Helen runs off with a car salesman, Jo gets closer with Jimmie, a sailor who promises to marry her. As relationships fray and an art student named Geoff assumes the role of a surrogate parent, the unconventional life under Jo’s roof is torn apart.
A Taste of Honey also features rearranged jazz musical and original compositions by Benjamin Kwasi Burrell capturing the essence of twentieth-century Britain.
