New dates have been announced for the UK tour of Nigel Slater’s Toast.
Following its world premiere at The Lowry, Salford in May, a sold-out run at as part of Traverse Festival 2018 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and a London transfer to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace, where it is currently playing until 3 August 2019, Nigel Slater’s Toast announces further dates for its UK tour.
In addition to the venues previously announced, the tour will also visit Liverpool Playhouse (10-14 Sept), Richmond Theatre (21-26 Oct), Theatre Royal Brighton (28 Oct-2 Nov) and Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre (25-30 Nov).
The tour launches at Huddersfield’s Lawrence Batley Theatre on 19 August 2019, where the play’s writer Henry Filloux-Bennett has recently been appointed Chief Executive, and will conclude at the Crewe Lyceum on 7 December 2019.
Fresh from the West End run, Giles Cooper (This House; People; After The Dance) will continue to star as Nigel Slater, with further casting to be announced.
Based on Nigel Slater’s award-winning autobiography, Toast vividly recreates Nigel’s childhood in 1960s suburban England. Told through the tastes and smells he grew up with, the audience is enveloped by the evocative sights and sounds of cookery that defined the definitive moments of his youth.
