Iconic Northern play ‘Bouncers’ – by renowned Yorkshire playwright John Godber – is coming to the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield in February after a sell-out tour in 2023.
Lucky Eric, Judd, Les and Ralph are the original men in black as they tell the tale of one night in a Yorkshire disco in the 1980s in this outrageous parody of Saturday Night Fever!
All the gang are out on the town, the boys, the girls, the cheesy DJ, the late-night kebab man, and the taxi home, all under the watchful eyes of the Bouncers.
John Godber said: “We are delighted to be taking ‘Bouncers’ back to the heyday of disco and the 1980s. Looking back there was so much wrong with the decade but also so much to celebrate. This new production dances a balance between what was great and what is cringe-worthy now.”
The play is widely studied across GCSE/A Level and university syllabuses and has been regarded as a ‘social phenomenon’ by The Guardian.
The show features Yorkshire actors George Reid and Frazer Hammill, who are returning performers for the John Godber Company, as well as newcomer Tom Whittaker.
The John Godber Company Present Bouncers from February 15 to 17 at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, with a post-show talk on February 15.
