FROM THE BARN THEATRE ARCHIVE

Happy Families

by John Godber
Directed by Keith Bridgeman
12th – 19th October 1991

A World Première sponsored by British Telecom on behalf of the Little Theatre Guild

John is fond of his family — after all, he is what they made him, isn’t he?

The play shows us the formative events in his life and portrays the character’s comedy and tragedy and the part they all played in the tapestry that is an English family. From mum with a mania for cleanliness to the nasty swot of a cousin, not all of them end as you, or they, might have expected.

From the author of Shakers, Bouncers and Teechers, this sharp comedy presents a wry look at an institution that is already, you might think, too familiar.

This is a world première of a play especially commissioned by the Little Theatre Guild and BT.
