Preview: The Press interview 'A Taste of Honey' star

Thu 03 Jul 2014

Written by Charles Hutchinson

SHAMELESS and Waterloo Road regular Rebecca Ryan has grown to know Jo, the 17-year-old tearaway in Shelagh Delaney's A Taste Of Honey, very well.

Review: Avenue Q

Fri 27 Jun 2014

Written by The Press

Avenue Q is a step out of the box for York Light Opera Company, but if it is a sign of things to come I’d keep my eye on them. In fact, I wouldn’t take it off of them. Cheesy and crude and wonderfully entertaining, the cast do this West-End production real justice with knock-out performances throughout. All in all, a roaring success.

Review: A Taste of Honey - Manchester Evening News

Thu 12 Jun 2014

Written by Natalie Anglesey

Often regarded as a dark drama, director Mark Babych has interspersed both live and recorded music of the period throughout with both Jo and her mother addressing the audience directly

Review: A Taste of Honey - What's On Stage

Thu 12 Jun 2014

Written by Glenn Meads

This bitter-sweet tale is well worth a visit even if you know the play well, as in the capable hands of Hull Truck Theatre and Derby Theatre, it's fresh and new.

Review: A Taste of Honey - The Public Reviews

Thu 12 Jun 2014

Written by Laura Maley

The final tableaux is surprisingly emotionally affecting. Jo is alone, small in her bedsit and with labour seemingly beginning. The other characters are placed about the stage leaving the audience with the knowledge that a story like this has no simple, neat, happy ending.

Review: A Taste Of Honey - Salford Online

Thu 12 Jun 2014

Written by Tony Flynn

Last night at the Lyric Theatre a full house was privileged to see Shelagh Delaney's timeless classic of teenage pregnancy, interracial love, homosexuality and shocking parental behaviour in A Taste of Honey.

Review: Morecambe - The Press

Thu 05 Jun 2014

Written by Steve Pratt

"WHAT do you think of it so far?" asked Bob Golding at one point and we, the audience, dutifully shouted back in true Morecambe and Wise fashion "Rubbish". We were lying.

Review: Morecambe - York Mix

Thu 05 Jun 2014

he just inhabits the spirit and physicality of Eric, portraying him perfectly.

Review: Blithe Spirit - The Arts desk

Thu 22 May 2014

Written by Steve Clarkson

Some people say that, in the age of theatrical consultants, narrative deconstruction, and the so-called "multimedia performance", conventional theatre no longer cuts the mustard. But there are still those large swathes of any audience who love a smooth journey between a beginning, a middle, and an end. Who shuffle politely past others towards their seats, look expectantly towards the stage curtain, and know exactly what's coming. And then go home smiling rather than thinking afterwards.

Review: Blithe Spirit - The Guardian

Tue 20 May 2014

Written by Alfred Hickling

The acclaim with which Angela Lansbury's Madame Arcati has been greeted in the West End suggests two things: that Blithe Spirit is as popular as ever and that one of Noël Coward's most meticulously engineered comedies is now chiefly regarded as a star turn for a batty, suburban psychic.
