A Taste of Honey

Shelagh Delaney’s ground-breaking British classic A Taste of Honey returns to the West End for the first time in 60 years.

Directed by Bijan Sheibani (Barber Shop Chronicles) and designed by Hildegard Bechtler (Antony and Cleopatra), A Taste of Honey is a gritty depiction of working-class life in post-war Britain and an exhilarating portrayal of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world. 

Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, One Man, Two Guvnors) leads the cast as Helen in an exciting staging featuring original compositions - influenced by blues and soul music - by Benjamin Kwasi Burrell, and rearranged songs from the jazz era, performed live by an on stage three-piece band and sung by the cast.

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.

    I first saw this as a movie many years ago. The mother and daughter theme was strong then. Furthermore the racial issue stayed in my mind. The National theatre production highlights all issues around race, gender, working class women and relationships in Shelagh Delaney's first play. The use of a Jazz trio and choice of songs helps to highlight the characters portrayed in the play. The relevant songs depicts their life and experiences living in Salford during the 50's. I loved the song 'Mad about the boy' introduced the character Geoffrey to inform the audience of his sexual preference. A great cast and production.
