The stage production of Nigel Slater’s award-winning autobiography Toast will embark on a UK tour this autumn, following its London debut at The Other Palace.
Told through the tastes and smells Slater grew up with, the acclaimed play follows Slater’s childhood years in 1960s suburban England as he develops a love of baking as well as dealing with a fractious family environment.
Written by Henry Filloux-Bennett, the play first opened at The Lowry in Salford before having a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. The play is about to open at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace Theatre for a limited 16 week season from 4 April 2019.
Slater said: “With the London run about to start, it’s an extremely exciting time as the words on the page come to life once again. I’m thrilled that the play will continue its journey after The Other Palace, visiting venues around the country.”
The tour will open in Huddersfield, where it runs from 19 to 24 August, before visiting Oxford, Southend, Newcastle, Malvern, Northampton, Salisbury, Manchester, York and Crewe, with further tour dates to be announced.
Toast is booking from 4 April 2019 until 3 August 2019 at The Other Palace Theatre, London.
