    Nigel Slater's Toast tickets

    Culinary favourite Nigel Slater sees his childhood brought to the stage as Nigel Slater's Toast makes its London debut. Based on his bestselling memoir, the show plays at The Other Palace.

    Nigel Slater's Toast is set in 1960s suburban England and follows Slater’s coming-of-age and the food that shaped him. Covering the loss of his mother, a strained relationship with his father, and the discovery of a life-long love of food, this is a charming and poignant play inspired by the power and memory of our favourite (and least-favourite) dishes. Audiences can also expect to enjoy sweet treats along the way as they are invited to sample some tastes from Nigel’s childhood.

    Nigel Slater's Toast was met with rave reviews during its run at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, whilst Slater himself is a hugely well-regarded culinary expert whose work ranges from columns with The Observer to BBC series Simple Suppers. His autobiography, Toast: The Story of a Boy’s Hunger, won the National Book Award for British Biography of the Year and was adapted for television in 2010.

    Giles Cooper (National Theatre: This House, Shakespeare's Globe: The Duchess of Malfi) stars as Nigel. He is joined by Lizzie Muncey (National Theatre: Twelfth Night) as Mum, Stephen Ventura (RSC: The Orphan of Zhao) as Dad, Marie Lawrence as Joan, and Jake Ferretti as Josh.

    The play is written by Henry Filloux-Bennett, directed and choreographed by Jonnie Riordan, designed by Libby Watson, and features food direction by James Thompson.

    With plenty of bittersweet moments interspersed with humour and delicious home comforts, Nigel Slater's Toast at The Other Palace is a recipe for success. It plays in London from 4 April to 3 August 2019.

    Performance dates: 02 Aug 2019 - 03 Aug 2019

    Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes (with an interval)

    Age recommendation: Recommended 10+

    Special notice: Fans of Nigel Slater as a food writer and critic will enjoy this charmingly executed peek into his early years.

    The show was incredible - I loved everything about it including the delicious tasty treats that are part of the show. I can’t believe that five actors pull it of every day. They are incredible. The set was a bit basic and in some situations you needed to use your imagination about were they were.

    I usually prefer musicals because I sometimes find plays quite monotonous, but Nigel Slater’s Toast is a truly delicious trip down memory lane with a mixture of nostalgia, sadness and happiness. You get a bit of everything as well as tasty treats during the show. I’d definitely recommend it!

    This was a fantastic play. The small cast work really hard throughout. How they remember so much dialogue is incredible. There is not a weak moment in the whole show. I've never been to a show before where the cast interactive with and give out sweets and puddings to the whole audience! It was really fun and a very special adaptation of a much loved book.

    I really enjoyed this show. I had seen a TV adaptation a few year's ago so had a rough idea what to expect but there was enough new to keep my interest. The use of the different parts of the set was clever, the cast were great and the edibles an added bonus!

    A poignant production also full of laughs, with an excellent cast. However it could let itself explore some of the darker emotions more.
