Jonnie Riordan’s bouncy production is fairly one-note; it’s an agreeable note, but it does try the patience after a time. Playful moments of fourth-wall breaking...are jolly at first, but become increasingly heavy-handed.

Whilst the production never quite manages to strike the tragic note that the plot would require, Toast is a fun celebration of food and how our childhood experiences of it shape us.
