Shelagh Delaney Quotes
(25th November 1939 – 20th November 2011)
The great Shelagh Delaney has unfortunately passed away. She was a groundbreaking playwright, most notably for her play A Taste of Honey that she wrote at the young age of 18 which discovered some forgotten misfits of the working class.
A Taste of Honey depicted marginalized groups from single mothers to unwed mothers to mixed-race relationships and gay young men in the working class. She was a very inspirational woman, to many but certainly to womankind.
Our favourite quote from A Taste of Honey:
Helen: “Everything’s seen at its best in the dark. Even me.”
And from the woman herself:
“My usual self is a very unusual self.”
– Shelagh Delaney, A Taste of Honey: A Play.
