Toast Play in Victoria

Nigel Slater’s Toast is a new play based on his award-winning autobiography. Following a phenomenal sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Toast is now making its West End debut at The Other Palace Theatre in Victoria. 1960’s suburban England has been vividly recreated to tell the story of Nigel Slater’s childhood through the tastes and smells he grew up with. From making the perfect sherry trifle through to the playground politics of sweets and the rigid rules of restaurant dining, this is a moving tale of love, loss and…toast! Written by Henry Filloux-Benneit and directed by Jonnie Riordan, head to see this nostalgic show.

Directed by Alan Lane, Tabby McTat tells the story of a cat with the loudest of miows and his best friend with a guitar.

All My Sons Play in Waterloo

Arthur Miller’s All My Sons comes to The Old Vic Theatre with a star-studded cast including famous faces such as Sally Field, Bill Pullman, Colin Morgan and Jenna Coleman. Set in 1940’s America, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story, despite hard choices they’ve had to make and even harder knocks they’ve taken. Nothing lasts forever though, and their contented lives, that have already been overshadowed by the loss of their eldest song at war, are about to shatter. Long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare. Directed by Jermey Herrin, this play is on until 8th June.
