The Fletcher Players present...
'A Taste of Honey' by Shelagh Delaney, Week 3 in the Corpus Playroom
'A Taste of Honey' created a stir in 1950s British theatre and society with its frank discussion of teenage pregnancy, racial prejudice and homosexuality. Set in a bedsit in Northern England, 17 year old Jo is forced into premature adulthood by her alcoholic mother and an unwanted pregnancy. In a poignant exploration of 'the outsider', we follow Jo's search for intimacy as she turns to other, socially ostracised, individuals, who helpher to reconstruct her shattered life.
I am looking for actors who are interested in working on a challenging production, which I am updating for the modern generation. The play requires sensitive actors who are eager to explore the individual's struggles against the social prejudices of our time.
