Reviews, Theatre - Julius Caesar at Hull Truck Wednesday 10th November 04 By Nicholas Boldock
Predictably, Hull Truck dispenses with tradition for this pulsating performance
of one of Shakespeare's most ambitious plays. The differences between Godber's version
and Shakespeare's are glaring - an original cast of 51 is slashed to just 6 actors
(although most of them play multiple roles)
Reviews, Theatre - Confessions Of A Hull City Supporter at Hull Truck By Nick Quantrill
Written by Hull City fanatic, Alan Plater, and with male characters played by actors from Hull,
it would be easy to write this play off as being a parochial Fever Pitch.
Whilst it's definitely a home banker, the structure of the play holds enough laughs
to get a result away from home.
Reviews, Theatre - Up 'n' Under at Hull Truck Theatre with Cast Interview 23/07/2004 By Andy Dykes
John Godber's play 'Up 'n' Under' has enjoyed widespread success for twenty years.
So it's obvious that the story, although I have to admit I don't really know it,
does not need to be reviewed.
So I realise that if this report is going to be of any worth at all, tonight
I need to review the performance.
Reviews, Theatre - Up 'n' Under at Hull Truck Theatre By Nicholas Boldock
Once upon a time, there was a young boy called James Crossley. James liked to play sport and
did a lot of exercise. He bought himself some weights and trained hard until he became big and beefy.
When James grew up he grew his hair all silly so that he looked like a blond spaniel.
Then he became famous
Reviews, Theatre - Up 'n' Under with Talkback at Hull Truck Theatre By Elsie Creek
So, it's twenty years ago that John Godber showcased this, his first play for Spring Street Theatre,
for which he won the Laurence Olivier Comedy of the Year Award.
There has been a lot of water under the bridge since then, as we were reminded in
the post-show talkback with director and cast.

Reviews, Theatre - Up n Under Hull Truck Theatre 17th July By Nick Quantrill
This special production of Up N Under is being staged to celebrate twenty years of
John Godber productions at Hull Truck.
As Godber's Olivier Award winner it's only right this should be the chosen play as well
as it being an opportunity to reclaim its reputation back after the sheer awfulness of the film it spawned.

A near capacity audience at the Spring Street Theatre attended the twentieth anniversary performance

pulling power and appeal of his work.

Reviews, Theatre - Be My Baby at The Hull Truck Theatre Saturday 12th June By Cilla
I'm not a regular theatre goer. Not at all. It's like a different world to me. And frankly in
the past I'd say that overall I felt disappointment and (perhaps imagined) exclusion from that
scene. My sister could appreciate it, enjoy it even but I always thought of myself as not
the type to go

pounding rhythms on African drums.

I shall start with no preamble but immerse you straight away very much the same way that the 30+ audience were.
Last Friday night at the EICH Gallery in Hull I was sat in the front row, watching and listening to the reading of ConPromise by Mal Williamson.
For the first 5 minutes I tried desperately to understand the ..

By E.M.X. Creek
I went to this production with some apprehension. I am not a huge Brontė fan, and in addition had some doubts as to how well Wuthering Heights would adapt for our modest location. I am happy to say that the result was remarkably good.
