The King Family

John Godber’s latest comedy set over three generations of the King family of Hull we see the highs and lows of a not so ordinary family.

From the docks of Hull, to prison, a lottery win, success in the coal trade and more, this story spans generations.

We join the King family for a journey from the 1960s all the way to Brexit, and beyond!

The Kings have been there, done that, and come out the other end fighting, and with some great stories to share with their audience.

The John Godber Company

The John Godber Company was started in 2011 as an outlet for John to freely create theatrical works without the influence of higher-ups wanting to change aspects of his work.

The name John Godber may not be as well known as it should probably be, with his works being the third most performed playwright. His name in Hull is most commonly associated with his work with the Hull Truck Theatre, his work helping to steer the theatre from bankruptcy to the success it is today.

You can learn more about John Godber and his works from his website.
