About the Show
Nigel Slater’s Toast is adapted for the stage by Henry Filloux-Bennett, who has previously directed Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest and Well by Lisa Kron at West End. Jonnie Riordan directs the play which features Giles Cooper in the title role of Nigel Slater. He is joined by a stellar cast of Lizzie Muncey (Mum), Stephen Ventura (Dad), Marie Lawrence (Joan), and Jake Ferretti (Josh). The set design by Libby Watson is striking and includes visually appealing kitchen sets carrying delicious aromas! James Thompson is the food designer and responsible for the delicious treats you get during the play.
Nigel Slater is one of UK’s most famous chefs and has written multiple books and featured in TV shows. The play is based on his autobiography ‘Toast: The Story of a Boy’s Hunger’ that recounts his journey to fame. The story begins during his childhood when his mother is asked to stop cooking because of her asthma, and they have to resort to eating tinned food and toast. Soon, she passes away, and his father remarries and this time around Nigel decides to pick up the apron and cook for his father’s attention!
Nigel competes with his step-mother to prepare his father’s lemon meringue pie and takes months to perfect the recipe. But his father doesn’t fully appreciate Nigel’s intentions and insists on typical expectations of masculinity on his son. It doesn’t help that Nigel is one of the rare boys who take up cooking in his O-levels in high school! Watch this heart-warming story of a boy who navigated his life with his love for food.
This play includes tastings where audience members will be invited to try dishes from Nigel’s childhood. Please note that food items may contain the following: nuts, peanuts, soya, gluten (wheat), dairy, and eggs.
Suitable for ages 10 and up.
The Other Palace has a seating capacity of 312.
