Cheap A Taste Of Honey tickets at the National Theatre
Written by Shelagh Delaney when she was just nineteen years old, the taboo-breaking A Taste Of Honey is one of the defining British plays of the 1950s, and pointed the way toward the social realism of the 1960s and beyond.
This new NT production offers an explosive celebration of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world. Bursting with energy and daring, this exhilarating, angry depiction of harsh working class life in post-war Salford is shot through love and humour, and infused with jazz.
When her mother Helen runs off with a car salesman, feisty teenager Jo takes up with a black sailor who promises to marry her. He heads for the seas instead, leaving Jo pregnant and alone.
Art student Geoff moves in and assumes the role of surrogate parent until, misguidedly, he sends for Helen and their unconventional setup unravels.

Lyttelton Theatre, National
The Lyttelton Theatre is, along with the the Cottelsoe and Olivier theatres, one of the three main venues that comprise London’s National Theatre complex. It’s situated at the NT, on the South Bank off Waterloo Bridge, close to Waterloo rail and tube stations.
Built in 1976, this 900 seat venue has no pillars or rails within its auditorium and as such offers unrestricted views.
The first production at the Lyttelton Theatre was Hamlet, which opened on 16 March 1976. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this key London theatre’s stage since then are The Madness of King George, After the Dance, The History Boys and A Woman Killed with Kindness.
The National Theatre company was formed in 1963 and worked out of its original base at the Old Vic Theatre for its first 13 years. Work on the National Theatre complex had been approved in the early ’60s. By 1976 the complex was a reality and the National Theatre company moved in.
The Lyttelton Theatre is the second largest of the three theatres inside the National Theatre complex. Named after Oliver Lyttelton, who was the first board chairman of the National, the theatre has a prominent, adjustable proscenium-arch design.
The stage is fitted with two sliding platforms which can transport entire sets on and off stage, allowing for faultless scene changes. The Lyttelton Theatre is known not only for its great sight lines but also for its outstanding acoustics.
Each theatre within the National compound can run up to three shows in repertoire at any given time, adding to the number of plays that can be showcased during a season.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Lyttelton Theatre make it the perfect place to see exciting new work, unique revivals and classical theatre. Recent successes include One Man, Two Guvnors, Can We Talk About This?, The Veil, The Doctor’s Dilemma and The Last of the Haussmans.
Whatever you decide to see at the Lyttelton Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
