Three Actors, Fifteen Characters, Countless Comic Capers! JAPE Productions present Men of the World by John Godber.

Three coach drivers take us on a journey down the Rhine Valley, where highlights include The Student Prince, Jean’s swollen ankles and Sissy’s Cheese and Tomato Sandwiches. You’ll share seats with the Beverley Sisters, Arsenic and Old Lace, Mario Lanza – and three retired miners who feel perfectly at home stuck under the Channel Tunnel… (GSOH essential, and no charge for baggage allowance).

John Godber was born the son of a miner in Upton, West Yorkshire. He trained as a teacher of drama at Bretton Hall College. Whilst he was Head of Drama at Minsthorpe High School, the school he attended as a student, he won every major award at the National Student Drama Festival between 1981 and 1983.

John’s plays are performed across the world. He has the distinction of being one of the most performed writers in the English language. He has won numerous awards for his plays, including a Laurence Olivier Award and seven Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards.

Directed by Paul Wilkinson for JAPE Productions, the cast is made up of Jacqui Padden, Peter Franksson and Alan Veale. All four reside in the North West and have performed professionally in and out of the area for many years. Men Of The World is their first play together, having combined their talents for the first time last year with their radio comedy sketch show/podcast The Red Rose Tattoo.

Performance starts 7.30pm.

Doors and Bar open 7.00pm.

Tickets £10 (concessions for Seniors and Students £8.50)
