Abandoned by her London boyfriend, Ronnie Kahn. Beatie Bryant became determined to improve herself, and to find her own voice.
Honey opens when she comes out of university with a degree. Education has made her feel a whole human being. And yet her encounters with the world outside are confusing and contradictory.
The old man in Shepherd's Market, the bookbinder, hidden in her little shop, the diverting sexual encounter, only serve to fragment her once again.
Even her love affair and the extraordinary career she stumbles upon, parallel her fear of fragmentation.
Written with a playwright's eye for scene and dialogue, Honey is an extraordinary addition to Arnold Wesker's brilliant career.
