Based on the British Book Awards Biography of the Year, ‘Toast’ is the story of Nigel Slater’s childhood, told through the tastes and smells he grew up with. From making the perfect sherry trifle to waging a war over cakes and from the pressured playground politics of sweets to the rigid rules of restaurant dining, this is a story of love, loss and…toast. 

Written by Henry Filloux-Bennett. Directed by Jonnie Riordan.

There will be a limited allocation of Pay What You Decide tickets for all Week 53 productions, more details to be announced in Spring 2018.
