Attitudes towards homosexuality in the 1950s are next month explored in a hard-hitting National Theatre touring production at Wolverhampton’s Grand Theatre.
Shelagh Delaney’s A Taste Of Honey was published in 1958 and is a career-defining British classic. Depicting working-class life in post-industrial Salford and tackling numerous taboos of the time - including homosexuality, inter-racial relationships and single mothers - it earned its teenage writer comparisons with Look Back In Anger author John Osborne.
The new National Theatre touring production stars Jodie Prenger in the lead role of Jo, whose meek and mild-mannered friend and roommate, Geoffrey, is seen primarily through the lens of his homosexuality.
A Taste Of Honey shows at the Grand from Tuesday 5 to Saturday 9 November.
