Show Info

By Richard Bean
Directed by Eleanor Rhode

With Will Barton, Simon Greenall, Matthew Kelly, Kieran Knowles, Steve Nicolson, Matt Sutton, and John Wark


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.
