John Godber’s ‘Bouncers’ has drawn audiences for over 30 years and his expert mixture of laugh-out-loud comedy, underlying darkness and wacky surrealism keeps us coming back for more. In true Godber style four actors portray over twenty different characters, walking various lines between life’s comedy gold and harsh reality.
It is a typical night for Eric, Les, Judd and Ralph – four bored bouncers – facing the tipsy girls and legless lads outside the dodgy local nightclub. Will they all have a good time? Will the DJ ever play a good song? And will the bouncers make it through yet another tedious shift?
This play includes some strong language.
