Nigel Slater’s Toast Other Palace, London tickets are now on sale!

This critically acclaimed autobiography by Nigel Slater is the greatest thing since sliced bread! And now it's a fully-fledged Off-West End production!

Popping right out of the toaster from the 2018 Edinburgh Festival, Nigel Slater’s Toast butters itself up for a highly anticipated transfer to The Other Palace in London! The 2004 award-winning memoir by Nigel Slater was first adapted into a 2010 BBC film starring Helena Bonham Carter and Freddie Highmore before being transformed into a hit new play that has already taken the Edinburgh Festival stage by storm!

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.
