EXPECT sharp one-liners, 80s dance floor classics and extraordinary characters when a tour of the hit comedy Bouncers gets under way tonight. 

John Godber's tour de force is being performed at MAST Mayflower Studios in Southampton before a tour of rural communities in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Sussex, and Wiltshire.

Bouncers will be performed at Rookesbury Park, Wickham on June 16, Sarisbury Green Community Centre on June 17 and Royal Victoria Country Park on June 30 among other dates.

In July, it heads to Fareham's Westbury Manor on July 14 before a run of open-air dates at Furzey Gardens from July 21 to 23.

Hysterically funny, with a touch of pathos and a whole load of nostalgia, it takes a look at the ups and downs of urban nightlife. 

Following a string of acclaimed shows, one of the south’s leading professional touring companies BlackBox is back on the road again.
