Angels of the North: In Conversation with John Godber

Sadly, as London’s West End is closed until 31 May 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, this event is now cancelled. We hope to reschedule in future. Thank you for your support.

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”
Michael Billington, The Guardian 2019

Any questions? Join us on 19th May in the West End and support our work in widening access to a career in the Performing Arts for those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Tickets are limited so don’t delay! Thank you for your support!

IMPORTANT: Until 31 May, public performances have been suspended in London’s West End, in order to avoid contributing to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Therefore our fundraiser, and sadly the run of Angels of the North at Trafalgar Studios is cancelled. Hopefully we will be able to reschedule this event. 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.
