A Taste of Honey

A Taste of Honey

Lesley Sharp (Paradise) leads the cast as Helen in this gritty depiction of working-class life in post-war Britain. This production is an exhilarating portrayal of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world.

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 a surrogate parent until, misguidedly, he sends for Helen and their unconventional setup unravels.

A production from National Theatre.

Available at least until 8 June 2023.
