Archives - A Taste of Honey
by Shelagh Delaney
Directed by Jon Brown
Friday 20th – Saturday 28th September 2013 in the Auditorium
A classic play with irrepressible characters…gritty, honest and poignant.
A Taste of Honey centres on Jo, a feisty young working-class teenager living with her ambivalent mother Helen in 1950’s Salford. They live together in a disreputable part of town; Helen constantly looking for a way out of the drudgery she finds herself in. When she decides to marry wealthy young Peter, her daughter is left on her own in the flat. At the same time, Jo falls in love with a black sailor, Jimmy. When he returns to sea the now pregnant Jo moves in with homosexual acquaintance Geoffrey, who assumes the role of surrogate father to her unborn child. However, her domestic routine is brought into doubt when Helen returns.
