"Women never have young minds. They are born three thousand years old." The Boy, "A Taste of Honey"
17 year old Jo and her mother, Helen, move into a working class slum in Northern England with little except the clothes on their backs. Helen soon deserts her daughter for a lover, and the tenacious Jo navigates romance, heartbreak, and poverty, never losing her sense of humor and optimism.
A sensation in 1959 with its bold racial and sexual themes, Delaney's script is considered a masterpiece of character driven black comedy. Virago Theatre Company's production at Thick House in San Francisco.
