Limelight Theatre Company presents
Bouncers ’90’s remix is a funny, brilliant, inventive and perceptive deconstruction of the Saturday night out. Set in the shadowy portals of Mr. Cinder’s nightclub. Four bouncers stand and ponder the punters and the passing of their lives. They boast and argue with each other, looking for excuses to unleash their inner violence.
Into this litany of misspent youth, the four straight-laced, Bouncers suddenly become young hairdressers, primping for their big night out ahead. Add a handbag and they’re on the disco floor. Add a leer and a slap of aftershave and they’re lads, trying to look old enough to be drinking, elbowing at the bar, downing the pints.
If you’ve ever been young and out on the town you will recognise these people. A good, entertaining night out which provides plenty of laughs but which is underpinned with some pretty raw truth about our drinking culture.
Named by National Theatre, London as one of the top 100 plays of the 20th-century Bouncers has been acclaimed worldwide.
