A TASTE OF HONEY SHELAGH DELANEY PDF

Jo rejects the idea of going to an art school, blaming Helen for having interrupted her training all too often by moving her constantly from one school to another. Jo now only wants to leave school and earn her own money so that she can get away from Helen. Jo assumes that Helen has moved here to escape from him, but the audience is never told the reason why. Peter had not realised how old Helen was until he sees her daughter. Nonetheless he asks Helen to marry him, first half-jokingly, then more or less in earnest.

She lives with her mother, who earns money by sleeping with men, in a filthy flat and she is soon left by her mother for Peter , who Helen marries for his money and youth. The picture is of a mother-daughter relationship that exists, but is seemingly beyond repair. Delaney reveals depths of history between the characters through the action of the play. But, it also leads to her pregnancy, and inability to properly deal with it. Ever since she has been using her body to pay her way through life, which has led only to poverty, dingy flats and morally corrupt men who, though have money, are lacking in nearly everything else.

Delaney creates an environment that is front and center with the times without smacking anyone over the head with an issue. Instead, the issues are revealed through character, by what someone does and does not say.

We see his nature by how he looks after Jo and cleans up the apartment. We understand Helen by her inability to care for anyone but herself. It raises questions about morality and responsibility to oneself, family, friends and identity.

It sparks the emotion of the audience by drawing it in to participate in the action rather than be told about it. Update this section!

The first of these advises that "in accordance with modern theatre practice, national anthems will only be played in the presence of royalty or heads of state". She knows what she is angry about. Although he and the rest of the cast had been warned that there might be might be trouble — "we were told the iron [safety curtain] would fall if that happened" — in the end, the performance ran without incident, and when the actors came to take their call, they heard "an amazing noise" that turned out to be a roar of approval. The play, about a Salford girl who gets pregnant by a black sailor and lodges with a gay man Geof , was an immediate hit, loved by critics and audiences alike, and in , it transferred to the West End. Naturally, Murray was thrilled; the play made his name. But he also thinks that it was, and still is, widely misunderstood.
