SNAPDRAGON PRODUCTIONS, IN ASSOCIATION WITH JAGGED FENCE THEATRE, Presents
Following a smash hit, sold-out production in London and a UK Tour, Richard Bean's (One Man, Two Guvnors) funny and brilliantly observed Toast finally comes to New York for a strictly limited engagement, starring Olivier Award-winner Matthew Kelly and an outstanding cast.
Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else. But this shift is going to be different, because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages.
-Ben Brantley, The New York Times, CRITICS' PICK!
"The play... displays the mordant and sometimes cruel humor that defines [Bean's] later work."
-The Guardian, US
"A not-to-be-missed production... Perhaps the TOAST of this year's Brits Off Broadway festival!"
"A feast of notable character actors, in perfect ensemble."
