HAPPY JACK by John Godber, directed by Dan Armour
BLT are delighted to present this First Knight production.
A 40-year love story – from Yorkshire pit village to Blackpool and back. Inspired by the story of his grandparents, John Godber’s bittersweet story of Yorkshire miner Jack and his long-suffering wife Liz, is filled with memories of a time now long gone but not forgotten. It chronicles their school days, as they start work, their courtship, marriage and parenthood, all peppered of course, with their hilarious rows with neighbours, friends, family and each other!
“Wood and Magnanti are both excellent and make us feel for their characters as their stories unfold.” London Theatre 1
“I was a sobbing mess as I was transported back to my grandparents’ home…” Fairy Powered Productions
“Jonny Magnanti as Jack is superbly grumpy and wonderfully touching. Tracey Ann Wood is superb as Liz.” London Pub Theatres
“Happy Jack is about a lifetime of routine, about memories from lives lived in a rut, but written so well and performed so beautifully by Jonny Magnanti and Tracey Ann Wood.” Weekender
This production was booked to play the English Theatre in Hamburg at the end of June but was unable to travel because of COVID restrictions. It is scheduled to tour this Autumn with RURAL TOURING and will be playing at BLT for two nights only.
