Nigel Slater’s ‘Toast’

Fri 31 Jul 20

Following its hugely successful 2019 West End run and national tour, Nigel Slater’s ‘Toast’ returns to the Lawrence Batley Theatre as an online play for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

‘Toast’ vividly recreates Nigel Slater’s childhood through the tastes and smells he shares with his mother, culminating in the young Nigel’s escape to London. From making the perfect sherry trifle, through the playground politics of sweets, the rigid rules of restaurant dining, and a domestic war over cakes, this is a moving and evocative tale of love, loss and…toast.

*Please note, goody bags including two Walnut Whips, recipe card and a programme have now sold out.
