Details

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 leaving her pregnant and alone. Art student Geoff moves in and assumes the role of surrogate parent until, misguidedly, he sends for Helen and their unconventional setup unravels.

Written by Shelagh Delaney when she was nineteen, A Taste of Honey is one of the great defining and taboo-breaking plays of the 1950's, offering an explosive celebration of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world.

Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, One Man, Two Guvnors, Abigail's Party UK tour) joins the cast as Helen, with further casting to be announced.
