From the Jacket

A sensational theatrical success in London, A Taste Of Honey was written by Shelagh Delaney at the age of 18. The play prompted Graham Greene to say that it had 'all the freshness of Mr. Osborne's Look Back In Anger and a greater maturity.'

About the Author

Shelagh Delaney, English playwright and television screenwriter, was born in 1939 in Salford, Lancashire to a bus inspector. At the age of 18, she completed her most famous play, A Taste of Honey, which recounts the story of a young white woman's difficult home life and the pregnancy that results from her affair with a black sailor. When it was produced in London in 1958, Delaney won immediate critical praise. She followed her success with another play, The Lion in Love. Delaney's screenplay, Dancing with a Stranger, tells the story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in England. It is recognized as a brilliant insight into Ellis's life and the forces that caused her to murder her lover.
