Top price tickets to see A Taste of Honey at the National Theatre

Written by Shelagh Delaney when she was nineteen, A Taste of Honey is one of the great defining and taboo-breaking plays of the 1950s.

When her mother Helen (Lesley Sharp) runs off with a car salesman, feisty teenager Jo (Kate O’Flynn) takes up with a black 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.

It’s chaotic – a bit of love, a bit of lust and there you are. We don’t ask for life, we have it thrust upon us.

A Taste of Honey offers an explosive celebration of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world. Bursting with energy and daring, this exhilarating and angry depiction of harsh, working-class life in post-war Salford is shot through with love and humour, and infused with jazz.

Playing from 10 February 2104 at the National Theatre
