Following its première at The Lowry in Salford in May and a run at the Edinburgh Fringe, the stage adaption of Nigel Slater's best-selling memoir Toast, written by Henry Filloux-Bennett and directed by Jonnie Riordan, is to receive a London transfer at The Other Palace from 4 April 2019.
Recreating suburban England in the 1960s, Slater's childhood is told through the tastes and smells he grew up with; to reflect this, audiences will be offered samples of the dishes and tastes central to his story during the show.
Nigel Slater said, "I am absolutely delighted that Toast will transfer to The Other Palace and it's been wonderful to see my story so sensitively adapted and so creatively staged this year. It's indeed a festive gift to announce that the show will continue in 2019 in London."
Director Jonnie Riordan added, "I'm really excited that we can bring Toast to the London stage. A huge amount of love has gone into the creation of this show and it is so thrilling to see the productions's evolution since its world première at The Lowry."
