John Godber

Published by Methuen

A first collection of plays by one of Britain's most popular and widely performed playwrights

Bouncers, a play about nightlife

"A show that's worth braving any front of house, however formidable ... simply spellbinding" ~ Guardian

Happy Families - "The inseparable contradictions of family love and oppression are carefully held in this fine comedy ... superb characterisation ... the rhythms of Godber's dialogue are freshly funny, the pace precise" ~ Independent

Shakers - a play about party-goers

"This is one of those slices of life that everyone can recognise and laugh at" ~ Liverpool Daily Post

"John Godber is one of the unsung heroes of British theatre, reaching the giddy heights of number three in the most-performed playwrights league table, nestled in behind Shakespeare and Ayckbourn" ~ Guardian
