Happy Families by John Godber

On his graduation day in 1978, John looks back over his early teenage years with warmth remembering the joys, tensions and sorrows of family life in West Yorkshire with his parents Vic and Dot, his grandparents and aunties.

John, now older and educated, finds himself alienated from his working-class family who cannot understand his theatrical aspirations.

An affectionate look at an ordinary family struggling with change described by John Godber as "humour with a touch of sadness".
