JOHN GODBER’S LOVE LETTER TO NORTHERN SOUL DO I LOVE YOU? SHUFFLES INTO NEW VIC




Multi award-winning playwright John Godber’s (Bouncers) latest comedy Do I Love You? draws upon his love of Northern Soul which he’s been a fan of since 1972!

 

With choreography by Northern Soul World Dance Champion 2022 Sally Molloy, from Staffordshire, the production from the John Godber Company takes to the stage at the New Vic from Tuesday 30 January to Saturday 3 February

What started as a college project has grown into a passion, but the dance steps are exhausting. Far beyond their home city of Hull our trio of twenty-somethings Sally (Martha Godber; Sunny Side Up, John Godber Company), Nat (Chloe Mcdonald; Twopence To Cross The Mersey, UK Tour) and Kyle (Emilio Encinoso-Gil; Peter Pan, Tony Peers Ltd, Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre) find excitement, purpose and the tribe they’ve been looking for. Now they can’t get enough; from Brid Spa to Stoke, from Chesterfield to the Tower Ballroom, our young soulies are determined to keep the faith!

This is Northern Soul for a new generation, but with rising costs, unemployment, and small-town blues, has anything really changed? Is this England 1973 or 2023?

Writer and Director John Godber said: “We are so looking forward to bringing Do I Love You? to the New Vic, not only because we enjoy our trips there, but we are aware how important the area was in the history of Northern Soul! We are also delighted to have been able to have the show choreographed by Northern Soul World Dance Champion Sally Molloy, who herself is from Staffordshire!”
