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. 

"They laugh, cry and fight together. Yet theirs is an indestructible bond that endures. There’s a truthful timeless quality to this little piece of Yorkshire with nowt taken out."- The Whitley Pump
"Saunders and Sherwood are commanding and authentic as the Yorkshire couple... Well done Progress on a delightful, absorbing and totally engaging evening of theatre." - The Henley Standard

Directed by Helen Wernham
