Nigel Slater's Toast

This event has passed

PW Productions and Karl Sydow present The Lowry production

Nigel Slater’s Toast returns to The Lowry where it premiered in 2018 as part of Week 53 Festival. Since opening at The Lowry, the show has been seen at Edinburgh Festival and in London’s West End and has now embarked on its first full UK Tour.

Nigel Slater’s Toast is a new play based on his award-winning autobiography. Vividly recreating suburban England in the 1960s, Nigel Slater’s childhood is told through the tastes and smells he grew up with. From making the perfect sherry trifle, waging war over cakes through to the playground politics of sweets and the rigid rules of restaurant dining, this is a moving and evocative tale of love, loss and…toast.
