Monday 4 – Saturday 9 November at 7.30pm
Thursday & Saturday matinees at 2.15pm



Direct from the West End

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.

★★★★★ “The show rises like a good soufflé”
Mail on Sunday
