Comedy Double Bill

'Bouncers'  by John Godber  AND
'Shakers'  by John Godber & Jane Thornton
directed by Lloyd Spencer & Gwenefer Roskilly

Wednesday 6th - Saturday 9th March 2019

We are excited to have recently announced that our first production of 2019 will be a comedy double bill: 'Bouncers' by John Godber and 'Shakers' by John Godber & Jane Thornton.

A satirical look at British nightlife, told through the eyes of four doormen and four cocktail waitresses. Eight performers take on the personalities of well over fifty characters in order to convey the sights and sounds that keep working class Brits drinking and dancing into the small hours of the morning.

This production presents the next acting opportunities with the company. We will be hosting a set of Play Readings in November prior to Auditions. Play Readings provide an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the play without any pressure to perform or audition, as well as offering a chance to meet other members of the company.

Play Readings:  
  Tuesday 13th November @ 7:30pm  
  Monday 19th November @ 7:30pm  
Sign up to our Facebook Event Facebook  
  Wednesday 21st November @ 7:30pm  
  Thursday 22nd November @ 7:30pm
