Nigel Slater brings Toast to the Oxford Playhouse

Lizzy Muncey and Giles Cooper

Following a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018, and a West End transfer to The Other Palace, Nigel Slater’s ‘Toast’ comes to Oxford Playhouse this August.

Based on Nigel Slater’s award-winning autobiography, ‘Toast’ vividly recreates Slater’s childhood through the tastes and smells he shares with his mother, culminating in the young Nigel’s escape to London. From making the perfect sherry trifle, through the playground politics of sweets, the rigid rules of restaurant dining, and a domestic war over cakes, this is a moving and evocative tale of love, loss and… toast.

Nigel 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.”

Nigel’s memoir ‘Toast – the Story of a Boy’s Hunger’ has won six major awards, has been translated into five languages and became a BBC film starring Helena Bonham Carter and Freddie Highmore

Tickets for Nigel Slater’s ‘Toast’ at Oxford Playhouse start at £10 and are available from the Ticket Office on 01865 305305 or book online at .
