Strike Happy

By Duncan Greenwood

11th - 15th April 1972

Come and enjoy a genuine North Country comedy. Strike Happy will not solve any industrial relations problem, but it will make you laugh.

The Plot so far…

Albert Hellewell is likeable, lazy and on strike. He is happy. Clara, his wife, is not. Hard-up, and irked by the workshy attitude of her mate, she stages her own strike and moves out, accompanied by her daughter Elsie.

Albert and Elsie’s fiancé, George, are left to cope as best they can.

With no money in his pocket Albert is stirred to activity. He starts to sub-let parts of the house. An assortment of lodgers appear, among them Mrs. Flannel and her daughter Rosie.

Now Clara is a forthright woman, skilled in the arts of matrimonial infighting, so when Mrs. Flannel sets her cap at Albert, and Rosie displays more than a passing interest in George’s direction…
