Bouncers take charge of Loft Theatre stage

Leamington Editorial 20th Apr, 2024   0

THE BOUNCERS will be centre stage at Leamington’s Loft Theatre next week.

John Godber’s ​Bouncers (Remix) is set in the early 90s on a typical night on the tiles at ‘Mr Cinders’ nightclub, as seen through the eyes of the bouncers on the door.

​Judd, Ralph, Les and Lucky Eric introduce the audience to giggly girls, lads out on the pull and a range of other characters – who may, or may not, make it through the doors and onto the hallowed ground of the club dancefloor.

​Director Lorna Middleton said: “The audience is, as is typical with Godber, challenged directly to consider the “correctness” of what they are witnessing as the bouncers act out all the scenes of a typical Friday night for youngsters in the early 90s.




“Vulnerability, consent, peer pressure, respect – is it any better now for today’s teens/20-somethings than it was in the 80s, or the 90s? You decide.”

The production runs from May 1 to 11.
