Toast by Richard Bean (playtext)


By Richard Bean

PRICE: £7.99

SUMMARY: Seven men come together to bake enough bread to feed the population of Hull. It’s just another Sunday. Nellie's so worn down from a lifetime making dough, he loses his vest in the mix. First, Owen Man's on a promise. The ovens are cranked up and running, and the wholemeal's pleasingly big going in. But there's a spanner in the works which threatens bread production in Hull for good, and life as they know it for the men on the shift. Toast is Bean’s second play, first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in February 1999.
