Leith Theatre: Bouncers
Wed 17 to Sat 20 May
It’s 1990. Judd, Les, Lucky Eric and Ralph man the doors of a nightclub. They’re mad, occasionally bad, but full of bravado and brawn and insist you dress to impress. These four lads watch girls dance around their handbags and the lads on the pull and play all the guys and gals that arrive. The disco beats and light show flashes, illuminating a raw, energetic, raucous and very funny, perhaps familiar, evening with those people you might have known, heard about, but certainly won’t ever forget. Admission prices on the door. Chicken in a basket is extra!
