Ambassadors

John Godber

John lives locally but his reputation as a great playwright is far-flung.  Both nationally and internationally, John’s work is highly acclaimed and performed all over the world.  He is regarded as the most performed playwright after Shakespeare and Ayckbourn.

John’s literary achievements are immense, ranging from four Olivier Awards, two BAFTAS, to scriptwriting for film and television. John’s prized Yorkshire Lifetime Achievement Award, in 2012, illustrates the huge importance of local culture in his writing.

East Riding Theatre is delighted to regularly present John’s excellent work on its stage.

 

Richard Bean

Richard’s internationally acclaimed West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors, and a succession of theatrical triumphs such as Under the Whaleback and Smack Family Robinson, places him within the top echelon of modern playwrights. His reputation is worldwide and his work is continuously sought-after.

Richard’s response to the project is ‘A theatre for the East Riding.  What a fabulous addition to a fabulous town’.

East Riding Theatre is hugely grateful for Richard’s support and honored by his acceptance of the position as one of our ambassadors.
