Description of Event: Happy Jack is a funny and touching play about Jack and Liz, a couple inspired by John Godber’s own grandparents. Weaving through 60 years of marriage, the pair introduce us to the characters they have known in their Yorkshire mining village and take us through love, sadness, anger, joy and conflict, from courtship to retirement and much in between.
“Neat, touching and joyously celebratory” – Financial Times
“There’s a truthful timeless quality to this little piece of Yorkshire social history that isn’t showing its age at all” – British Theatre Guide.
