"John Godber is one of the unsung heroes of British theatre, reaching the giddy heights of number three in the most-performed playwrights league table, nestled in behind Shakespeare and Ayckbourn" - Guardian Bouncers, a play about nightlife: "A show that's worth braving any front of house, however formidable ... simply spellbinding" Guardian Happy Families: "The inseparable contradictions of family love and oppression are carefully held in this fine comedy ... superb characterisation ... the rhythms of Godber's dialogue are freshly funny, the pace precise" Independent Shakers, a play about party-goers: "This is one of those slices of life that everyone can recognise and laugh at" Liverpool Daily Post

"It was the best of times, it was the best of times," to paraphrase Dickens' famous line. That was the experience of the few youthful hopefuls who founded an amazing tradition all those years ago. It was the experience too of the many who happened upon or sought out Theatre West Four and joined up to become faithful supporters and contributors. It became - for most of them - the centre of their social activity and natural supplier of entertainment; the highlight of each week. Too strong a statement? Read Tony Nicholl's wonderful discourse on the life and times of TW4 and discover more.
