BOUNCERS, John Godber’s hilarious dark comedy, will launch a new pub theatre in Southampton tonight.

The show will take over the upstairs bar at The Frog and Frigate on Canutte Road.

Set in 1984, the classic comic drama tells the story of a typical northern nightclub and the colourful characters who inhabit its doors and dancefloor. It’s Friday night and the weekend’s finally here. Maureen and the girls are having their hair done; Barry and the lads are ‘down the pub’ getting a few drinks in; and Ralph, Les, Judd and Lucky Eric are manning the doors at the town’s hottest nightspot - Mr Cinders!

Packed with sharp one-liners, 80’s dancefloor classics and a host of larger-than-life characters, Bouncers will transport you back to the heady days of big shoulder pads and even bigger hair. Laugh-out-loud funny, thoughtful, with a touch of pathos and a whole load of nostalgia thrown in, this hilarious one-act play takes an inside look at urban nightlife in the 80’s.

£10 tickets are available from The Frog and Frigate, or 01329 231942.
