As the Phoenix Theatre Company celebrates it’s 40th anniversary, our Chief Executive David Garrett and fellow Director Alison Thoburn revive this popular John Godber play they performed some 27 years ago.

Happy Jack is a funny and touching play about the lives of Jack & Liz. Set in a West Yorkshire mining village, the play is inspired by John Godber’s own grandparents and follows the couple’s 60 year marriage through good times and bad.

The play weaves through the story of this ordinary working class family and retells snippets of their lives together, the love, sadness, anger, joy and conflict. Balancing humour with some tougher realities, the play highlights the lives of working miners and the terrible legacies that many of them were left with long after leaving the pits.

Please note this is a studio performance and therefore seating is unallocated.
