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.
