While not a touring show, Bouncers is surely worth a spot in our production area. A highly successful co-production with the MAC //themaclive.com
Zoe is no stranger to the play nor to John Godber’s work having worked with him at Hull Truck, and directed the play 5 times. But she couldn’t resist the opportunity for one more working of the play the Guardian called ‘a social phenomenon’. Particularly as these Bouncers are from the unique place that is/was 1980’s Belfast.
With a cleverly nostalgic 80’s soundtrack from Garth McConaghie http://www.composergarth.com/ a dream cast of Chris Robinson, Ciaran Nolan, Conor Grimes and Marty McGuire and a choreographer like Sarah Johnston – Bouncers (in Belfast) was always going to be a fast, witty, and entertaining ride, and unapologetic for letting the difficult conversations stay where they belong – in the script and on the stage.
Bouncers plays at the MAC March – end April 2019.
