The Harlequin Theatre, Northwich are pleased to present the award winning comedy 'Bouncers', by John Godber, which always plays to a capacity audience. 



'Bouncers' was first performed in 1983 by the Hull Truck Theatre Company, and has undergone a number of enhancements since... We will be performing the 1990's 'remix' version. 

Bursting with imagination, & running at a furious pace, the show is an outrageous and hilarious parody of the nightclub scene, presented by just 4 male actors portraying over 20 different characters on a single night out 'on the town'.  We observe humour and pathos as the 4 brutish bouncers of the title take you through their thoughts and feelings for each other and life in general.. Laugh at the giggly girls and loutish lads (which the 4 actors also portray) as they prepare for and indulge in a 'big night out' at the disco.. where we also meet an entire cross-section of disco-goers, including Hooray Henrys, pogo-ing punks and drunken slobs.!

The evening's events are set against the tatty glitzy glamour, flashing lights and pulsating beat of the northern nightclub scene. An exhilarating night out for all concerned.
