A Celebration of Shelagh Delaney with Selina Todd and Peter Bradshaw

Salford born Shelagh Delaney was a 19 year old working class girl when she wrote “A Taste of Honey” in 1955. Described as the most performed play written by British Woman in post war history. The rest of her career focussed on social commentary and put into question, class, race, gender and sexual orientation in mid-twentieth-century Britain. Becoming known as ‘Kitchen Sink Plays’ her work became integral to a genre revolutionising British theatre at the time. Historian and academic Selina Todd, discusses her book ‘Tastes Of Honey – The Making of Shelagh Delaney and a Cultural Revolution’.
