Jack Rooke's Good Grief airs on BBC Radio 4

Mar 16, 2017

An adaptation of Jack Rooke's critically acclaimed debut Edinburgh show, Good Grief airs on 16th March at 11pm on BBC Radio 4.

At 15 years old Jack was an old man trapped in a child's body, he listened to Woman's hour, wrote poems and went to bingo with his Nan, whilst his Jack-the-lad dad encouraged him to go off road racing and live life. In the middle of his GCSEs Jack had to go from child to man overnight, when his dad unexpectedly died of cancer. Seven years on, Jack and his paternal grandmother take us on their funny and poignant journey of good grief.

Jack is currently working on his new show, Happy Hour, with Soho Theatre for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 and the original stage production of Good Grief will be going on tour across the UK from the end of March through to June. For more information on the tour, click here
