A Taste of Honey

The Armidale Playhouse – July 1984

Directed by Barbara Mason

By Shelagh Delaney


Manchester England


Helen lives with her daughter Jo, who is a young girl of mixed emotions and temperament.

Peter is a man of few words and of less patience who tries to make an honest woman of Helen.

She is ten years his senior and of questionable reputation.

Jo meets a coloured male nurse who leaves her with a constant reminder of their brief encounter.

Geoff is an art student who decides to try and help but is only ridiculed because of what he appears to be.
