"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

Autorenporträt
John Godber (b. 1956) is a British playwright and director known for his boisterous comedies; his work with the Hull Truck Theatre over 25 years has lead to his being dubbed "the true mouth of the Humber".

Born in Yorkshire, the son and grandson of miners, Godber trained as a teacher, and became head of drama at his old secondary school in Minsthorpe. Students at Minsthorpe were thus the first to present many of Godber's early plays, which won a series of awards at the National Student Drama Festival.

In 1984 Godber became artistic director of the Hull Truck Theatre, a position he continued to hold until 2010. Faced with financial crisis, Godber made an attempt to woo local audiences with his first play for Hull, the comedy Up 'n' Under (1984). This runaway success was followed by a long string of hits, including Teechers (1987), On the Piste (1990), The Office Party (1992), Gym and Tonic (1996), and Perfect Pitch (1998), about a group of caravanning enthusiasts. In the mid-1990s, a government arts documentary reported that Godber had become the third most performed playwright in Britain, after Shakespeare and Ayckbourn. His most popular work by far has proved to be Bouncers, a comedy about four doormen at a down-market nightclub that he first wrote in 1977 but subsequently reworked for performance in the 1980s and 1990s. More recent plays, such as On a Night Like This (2000) and Sold (2007), which deals with the issue of people-trafficking, have been judged bleaker and less ebullient than earlier work. Godber has also directed and adapted plays by other authors, as well as writing widely for theatre.
