Bouncers

By John Godber & Jane Thornton

Directed by Hayley Clines

Bouncers is set in and around Flamingo Joe’s – a nightclub, with the action focusing on the exploits of the four doormen and their customers. The play creates a vivid picture of the relentless antics of nightlife with its raw energy, flashing disco lights and raucous lads and lasses out on the town. The quartet of actors switch with pin-sharp precision from charismatic doormen to giggling girls to lads on the lash and back again.

Four decades after John Godber’s Bouncers was first staged at the Fringe it remains one of the most popular and performed comedies.

About the show
This is a depiction of a nightclub through the evening as told by 4 bouncers, each with a  different take on the nightlife world. This will have a twist as it will not be set “up north” but daaaaaaawn south, so bring your best east end accents with you. Our January 2018 production of Shakers (the female partner production) was set in the ’80’s, so we’ll be choosing a different decade for this one.
Characters
Can you dance, can you rap, can you have a laugh and make sure that the life of one of the following bouncers can become your own for 4 nights only….? Read on:
Eric – Recently separated from his wife. Can be older than the other bouncers. Gives the impression that he is a deeper, more thoughtful character than some of the others. His monologues show his distaste as the objectification of women within the nightlife.
Also plays Baz ( Group fo lads) and Maureen ( Group of ladies) and a Buxom Swede.
Les – Eager to get into fights. Hot-headed and temper runs high.
Also plays Kev ( Group of lads), Rosie( Group of girls).
