John Godber Company and Theatre Royal Wakefield 


Thursday, 24 January, 2019 to Saturday, 2 February, 2019
Theatre Royal Wakefield

This production of Bouncers has been rescheduled for January 2019.

Written by John Godber OBE

The international smash hit comedy returns!

Lucky Eric, Judd, Les and Ralph are back and telling the tales of a Yorkshire nightclub. Of lads and lasses, sticky floors and shots galore, and the early morning taxi home, all under the watchful eyes of the bouncers. Written by the multi award winning John Godber, this modern classic will see the boys catapulted into the 21st century! With contemporary music and an updated script to boot, this one’s worth getting dressed up for!

‘Bouncers is not so much a play as it is a social phenomenon’
The Guardian

Recommended age 14+
