St Austell Players present Bouncers by John Godber, directed by Kim Rowe, and Shakers by John Godber and Jane Thornton, directed by Rose Lancaster.
Godber’s 80s classic Bouncers and the, later added, sister play Shakers (co-written with Jane Thornton) were originally penned to expose the dark underbelly of 80s night-life in Britain.
This production has been revised for a more modern audience, without forgetting its working class, social context.
Four Bouncers. Four cocktail waitresses. One Double-Bill of hard-hitting, hilarious physical comedy !
Through outrageous observations, colourful characters, and lively, emotional snapshots, Bouncers and Shakers explores the shadowy underbelly of Britain after dark, as seen through the eyes of four cocktail waitresses and the men on the club door.
Cue giggly girls, pogo-punks, Mr & Mrs Trendy and “lads on the razz” tittering at the thought of a ‘Long Slow Comfortable Screw’ as Bouncers and Shakers offers a fascinating view of the reality behind the pulsating beats of the dance floor and the not-so-glitzy-glamour lurking beyond the plastic palms and Pina Coladas.
Please note performances contain explicit language and adult themes.
Doors Open and Licensed Bar from 7.00pm. The Plays start at 7.30pm
Programmes and merchandise will be available to purchase at the event.
