1st – 9th February 2013 at 8pm Bouncers & Shakers
By  John Godber & Jane Thornton
Directed by Hannah Leonard

It’s Friday night, it’s party night – time for Bouncers to come alive! In this outrageous and hilarious parody of the nightclub scene, four brutish bouncers portraying over twenty different characters invite us for a night out on the town. We meet giggly girls, lads on the make and a smooth-talking DJ, all set against the tatty, glitzy glamour, flashing lights and pulsating beats of the dance floor.

Every town has its Shakers, the oh-so-trendy cocktail bar where everyone wants to be seen: from the checkout girls to the chinless wonders, the yuppies to the local lads tittering at the thought of a ‘Long Slow Comfortable Screw’. We catch a wickedly funny glimpse of this world through the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality behind the Pina Coladas.
