Following the success of their previous performance ‘Elsie and Norm’s Macbeth’, Monkey on the Wall Productions is proud to bring you its next work, a comedy about life and love in a Northern town; John Godber’s most autobiographical play, ‘Happy Jack’.

‘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.

So come and join us for what promises to be a funny, moving and heart-warming evening.
