In Our House May, a widow, mother and grandmother, ispacking up her home of 45 years and heads for a life in the sun.However, trading neighbourhood hell for the Costa del Calm is no easytask as memories are harder to let go than possessions. First producedin 2007, the play was revived and toured the UK in 2008.
In Crown Prince (2007) Godber finds comedy in a bowls club,and against the backdrop of the advancing years of its members, issuesof redundancy, bereavement and guilt emerge.
Sold is the author’s most politically charged play to date,exposing the misery of people-trafficking and women sold into thesex-trade in Britain.
Christmas Crackers follows overworked A&E nurses Holly and Kath on a shopping and booze trip to Prague where things take an unexpected turn.

’John Godber’s work is unique; he is able to speak to a very broadaudience in a way that is thought-provoking, exciting and always veryfunny.’ Hilary Strong, Executive Director of Greenwich Theatre
