A Taste of Honey

A Taste of Honey

Jo (Rita Tushingham) lives with her single mother, a tarty, rent-skipping pub singer. After her mother runs out with a new bloke Jo moves in with a gay friend. Falling pregnant to a black sailor she watches the hope of forming a new family, however unconventional, evaporate under the destructive force of her mother’s reappearance. Adapted by Shelagh Delaney from her stage play this is the epitome of British kitchen-sink realism.
