A TASTE OF HONEY COMES TO THE LOWRY THIS SEPTEMBER
A Taste of Honey, Shelagh Delaney’s career defining play, is coming to Salford this autumn. This British classic is an exhilarating depiction of working-class life in post-war Salford.

What's On Guide


Shelagh Delaney’s remarkable taboo-breaking 1950s play, which was first produced in the Lyttelton Theatre in 2014, is directed by Bijan Sheibani and designed by Hildegard Bechtler, re-conceived in an exciting new production featuring a live on stage band.

Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, Shirley Valentine, Abigail’s Party UK tour), leads the cast as Helen. Joining her are Gemma Dobson as Jo, Durone Stokes as Jimmie, Stuart Thompson as Geoffrey, and Tom Varey as Peter.

They are joined by understudies Liam Bessell, Katy Clayton, Claire Eden, and Marcel White.

Written by Salford's very own Shelagh Delaney when she was nineteen, A Taste of Honey offers an explosive celebration 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 Jimmy, a sailor who promises to marry her, before he heads for the seas.

Art student Geoff moves in and assumes the role of surrogate parent until, misguidedly, he sends for Helen and their unconventional setup unravels.
