Following its world premiere at The Lowry, Salford, in May, the stage adaption of Nigel Slater’s best-selling memoirs Toast is to be performed at the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of Traverse Festival 2018.

Vividly recreating suburban England in the 1960s, Nigel Slater’s childhood is told through the tastes and smells he grew up with.

From making the perfect sherry trifle, waging war over cakes through to the playground politics of sweets and the rigid rules of restaurant dining, this is a moving and evocative tale of love, loss and...toast.

Originally produced by The Lowry for Week 53 festival, Toast is adapted by Henry Filloux-Bennett and directed by Jonnie Riordan.

Nigel Slater said: "I have always felt the story would work well on stage and this adaption is beautifully written, warm, funny and produced with originality and great sensitivity. My story couldn’t be in better hands.”

Casting has been announced. Sam Newton (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,UK Tour)  will continue to play ‘Nigel Slater’, alongside Lizzie Muncey (Twelfth Night, National Theatre) as ‘Mum’, Marie Lawrence (Murder in Successville, BBC3) as ‘Joan’, Mark Fleischmann (The Cherry Orchard, National Theatre) as ‘Dad’ and Jake Ferretti(The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Apollo Theatre/National)as ‘Josh’.

The author of a collection of bestselling books and presenter of nine BBCtelevision series, Nigel Slater has been the food columnist for The Observer for 25 years.

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

Nigel is currently presenting the programme Middle East on BBC2.
