“Remarkable. . .” New Yorker Magazine
“All the freshness of Mr. Osborne’s Look Back in Anger and a greater maturity. . .” Graham Greene
"Women never have young minds. They are born three thousand years old." The Boy, "A Taste of Honey"
17 year old Jo and her mother, Helen, move into a working class slum in Northern England with little except the clothes on their backs. Helen soon deserts her daughter for a lover, and the tenacious Jo navigates romance, heartbreak, and poverty, never losing her sense of humor and optimism.
A sensation in 1959 with its bold racial and sexual themes, Delaney’s script is considered a masterpiece of character driven black comedy.
Featuring: David Bicha, Michaela Greeley, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Brian Martin, Daniel Redmond
