Quick Reference

(1939–2011),

playwright, is known for A Taste of Honey, written when she was 17. It was presented by Joan Littlewood in 1958 and was hailed as a landmark in the new school of ‘kitchen sink’ realism, a movement partly inspired by reaction against the drawing‐room drama of Rattigan and Coward. Subsequent works, written for the cinema and television, include Charley Bubbles (1968) and Dance with a Stranger (1985).
