Following a phenomenal sell-out run at the Traverse part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Nigel Slater’s Toast now makes its West End debut at The Other Palace…

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.

Playing at The Other Palace until 3rd August 2019.

UK Tour from August 2019
