The National Theatre perform Shelagh Delaney’s career defining play.

The National Theatre bring Shelagh Delaney’s career defining play A Taste of Honey to Norwich. Directed by Bijan Sheibani (Barber Shop Chronicles), this British classic is an exhilarating depiction of working-class life in post-war Salford. 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. Don’t miss your chance to see one of the great taboo-breaking plays of the 1950s!
