Writer Shelagh Delaney dies at 72
LONDON (AP) - Playwright Shelagh Delaney, best known for her 1958 play “A Taste of Honey,” has died. She was 72.
Delaney’s agent Jane Villiers said Monday that the writer died of cancer at her daughter’s home eastern England on Sunday night. She was 72.
Delaney was just 19 when “A Taste of Honey” premiered. The downbeat tale of a pregnant young woman’s supportive relationship with a gay artist verged on scandalous at the time, but the play had successful runs in London and New York.
“A Taste of Honey” was made into a film in 1961, and Delaney and the film’s director, Tony Richardson, shared BAFTA and Writer’s Guild awards for best screenplay.
