Angels of the North: In Conversation with John Godber

Join us on 19th May at the Trafalgar Studios for a special performance of John Godber’s Angels of the North in support of NYAT’s work in Hull. Each year we have to find £18K to run our drama project in Hull. Please help us continue this work. £15 from each ticket will come directly to NYAT.

A special performance of John Godber’s brilliant new play, Angels of the North, is being held in aid of our work on 19th May 2020, followed with a cast and creatives Q&A chaired by Terri Paddock.

Set before, during and after the General Election on December 12th 2019, Angels of the North is a hilarious and touching insight into what it means to the North now the red wall has fallen, seen through the eyes of a struggling taxi firm at the end of the line.

Written as a companion piece to the hugely successful and critical hit, Scary Bikers, Angels of the North is a contemporary comedy which negotiates the idea of a new North under a new government. Told with the signature wit and dry observations which make Godber’s work so popular. 

In the heart of the West End at Trafalgar Studios, the performance will be followed by a drinks reception and Q&A for ticket holders of the performance on the evening of 19th May. £15 of the ticket price will go to the National Youth Arts Trust’s youth theatre project in Hull.

“Godber can invoke a whole world in a single line”

IMPORTANT: As of 17 March, many public performances have been suspended in theatres, in order to avoid contributing to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). At the moment, we are hopeful that our fundraiser, and importantly the run of Angels of the North will be able to go ahead in May if it is safe for theatres to reopen. For now we hope that you continue to support our fundraiser at the Trafalgar Studio, with The John Godber Company and NYAT. The impact of COVID-19 is a huge threat to the livelihoods of all those who work in the Arts, and we thank you for your continued support. We will keep you updated if there are any changes as directed by Trafalgar Studios and The John Godber Company, in line with official government advice. Everyone’s health and safety is our top priority.
