A Taste of Honey
Where: Grand Theatre
The National Theatre, producers of Macbeth and War Horse, bring Shelagh Delaney’s ground-breaking British classic A TASTE OF HONEY to Wolverhampton prior to the West End.
Bijan Sheibani (Barber Shop Chronicles) directs Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, Abigail’s Party) as Helen in an exhilarating portrayal of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world, featuring original music performed live by the cast and an 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 setup unravels.
Don’t miss your chance to see one of the great taboo-breaking plays of the 1950s!
The appearance of any particular cast member cannot be guaranteed.
