Synopsis

A Taste of Honey

A Taste of Honey $14.99

Shelagh Delaney

Published by Methuen

The play is about the adolescent Jo and her relationships with those about her - her irresponsible, roving mother Helen and her mum's newly acquired drunken husband, the black sailor who leaves her pregnant and Geoffrey, the homosexual art student, who moves in to help with the baby

It is also about Jo's unshakeable optimism throughout her trials

This story of a mother and daughter relationship (imitated in other British plays since) set in working class Manchester continues to enthral new generations of readers and audiences

Now established as a modern classic, this comic and poignant play by a then nineteen-year-old working-class Lancashire girl was praised at its London premiere in 1958 by Graham Greene as having " ... all the freshness of Mr Osborne's Look Back in Anger and a greater maturity"
