In the latest London Review of Books podcast Susan Pedersen talks to Joanna Biggs about Shelagh Delaney and her 1958 play A Taste of Honey.

Delaney was a female, working-class dramatist. She put Black, female and working-class characters into her plays not as personifications of social problems but as people in their own right.

She is often lumped in with the Angry Young Men, but there was little that was feminist about that movement.
