Happy Jack

By John Godber

10-17 September 2022, 7.30pm


This is the story of a lifetime in one night, a funny and touching play about the lives of Jack and Liz - characters last seen on the Stockport Garrick Theatre stage in SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN. Set in a West Yorkshire mining village, HAPPY JACK follows the couple’s 60-year marriage through good times and bad. Weaving through the story of this ordinary working class family are telling snippets of their lives together, the love, sadness, anger, joy and conflict. HAPPY JACK balances humour with some tougher realities, highlighting the lives of working miners and the terrible legacies that many of them were left with long after leaving the pits.

This amateur production of “Happy Jack” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
