Bouncers & Shakers
By Jane Thornton & John Godber
The original versions of John Godber and Jane Thornton’s classic comedies come together in one hilarious play.
Bursting with imagination and wit, the four brutish bouncers of the title portray over twenty different characters as we are invited for a night out on the town.
Every town has its local trendy cocktail bar and we are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses who work there. A hilarious view of the reality which lurks behind the plastic palms and the pina coladas.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Four lovers arguing among themselves. A crew of over-keen mechanicals trying, without much success, to produce a play fit for a king. One very mischievous sprite determined to cause havoc. This is the plot played out against, love, fairies, magic and a donkey! What more could you ask for in this favourite Shakespeare comedy.
