The John Godber Company presents the iconic northern play returning 2024 after its hit 2023 tour!

By John Godber

Directed by Jane Thornton

Join Les, Ralph, Judd and Lucky Eric as they relive a night in a Yorkshire disco in the 80s. Like a hideously funny Saturday Night Fever, the original Bouncers is back in town. Everyone will be there: the DJ, the girls, boys and the fish and chip van.

Originally premiering at the Edinburgh Festival in 1977, Bouncers is still one of the most performed plays in the UK today and is named as one of the National Theatre’s ‘Plays of the Century’. Don’t miss the classic comedy and northern favourite.

Hilarious, vulgar, frenetic and highly physical, the play has become an international sensation, gathering awards from around the world. Often imitated but never beaten, the original Bouncers is eye- wateringly funny, celebratory and as relevant today as it ever was. With a pumping 80’s soundtrack, this new production takes us back to the glorious highs when disco was king, and everyone lived for the weekend. Like a hideously funny Saturday Night Fever, Bouncers is more a social phenomenon than a play.

Celebrate good times, Come on!

But if your names not down, you’re not coming in! BOUNCERS, they only come out at night.
