Postponed – Theatre: A Taste of Honey at the Abbey Theatre (audio described, touch tour and captioned performance)

25 Jul 2020, 12:45 pm (Past)

Abbey Theatre

The granddaughter of Irish emigrants, Shelagh Delaney, wrote her ground-breaking debut play A Taste of Honey when she was just 19. It became one of the defining plays of the 20th century.

Jo is a spirited teenager, living with her mother Helen, in a run-down area of Salford. Their relationship falls apart as they both struggle against their place in a man’s world. Can they rediscover just how much they need each other?

A Taste of Honey caused a storm on its premiere in 1958, due to its portrayal of mixed-race relationships, gender, and sexual orientation. This new production revisits a play that explores topics we continue to wrestle with today.
