What is Nigel Slater's Toast play about?
Mrs. Slater is suffering from chronic asthma that prevents her from preparing proper meals for her family. She is forced to resort to tinned food and…toast. After her untimely death, Nigel’s father continues in a similar cooking fashion until Nigel decides he’s had enough with ‘eating what’s put in front of him.’ Hungry and armed with a spatula, Nigel competes with his stepmother to win over his father’s heart.
Nigel Slater’s best-selling 2004 publication, Toast: The Story of a Boy’s Hunger, has been translated into 5 different languages and won six literary awards, including British Biography of the Year at the National Book Awards. Shortly following its critical success, the memoir was adapted into the smash-hit, BBC made-for-tv film Toast.
