When her mother Helen runs off with a car salesman, feisty teenager Jo takes up with a black sailor who promises to marry her. He heads for the seas instead, leaving Jo 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 just nineteen years old, the taboo-breaking A Taste Of Honey is one of the defining British plays of the 1950s, and pointed the way toward the social realism of the 1960s and beyond.

This new NT production 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 love and humour, and infused with jazz.
