SETTING
Castleford, Yorkshire. Various locations c.1984

Up ‘n’ Under by John Godber (1956- ) vies with his earlier play, Bouncers, as the most popular and successful piece devised for the Hull Truck Theatre Company and it won the Olivier Award for Comedy Of The Year in 1984.

Having previously directed it elsewhere in 2007, I jumped at the chance of taking on this exciting and accessible play again but,
this time, in a new space and with a new cast. There’s always a temptation to try and reproduce a past success but, with a different, though experienced cast, fresh challenges and ideas bubble up and bring the play to life all over again.

I hope that you enjoy meeting our “petal soft warriors”, as they face the most testing rugby match of their lives and that “your eyes will gaze in awe at splendid sights unseen”! Colin Green
