Film Description: Based on the heart-wrenchingly bittersweet story of food writer Nigel Slater's childhood, and set to the songs of Dusty Springfield, Toast is a delicious love letter to the tastes and smells that a young boy associates with his journey into adulthood. No ordinary boy, Nigel, laps up cookbooks, spending all his time gazing longingly at the delights on offer in Percy Salt's grocers. Nigel's father, meanwhile, worries that there is something "wrong" with his son and the two find it difficult to connect. Nigel finds it far easier relating to Josh, the gardener, who teaches Nigel about the wonders of nature as they sit munching freshly picked radishes and pork pies. After Nigel's mother dies, leaving Nigel and his father heartbroken, the two struggle on fuelled by cheese on toast, until a saucy new cleaner who makes lemon meringue pies to die for arrives.
Ticket Information: This event is open to the public. Tickets cost $6 per person, $4 for senior citizens and students. Tickets may be reserved in advance by calling 717-871-2308 or purchased at the door or one hour prior to the performance.
