A high-octane comedy that turns the night you’d rather forget into a night you’ll always remember.
Full of night-on-the-town tales told by the men who stand at the door, Bouncers is the most hilarious spit-fire comedy you’ll ever see in four suits.
Rude, crude, Bouncers is a very entertaining way for audiences to reflect on substance abuse and masculine culture in their own communities.
Four tough-looking actors - in high-octane performances - play Bouncers, young women, young men, and the entire motley crew of characters you'd expect to find on a drunken night out on the town - the obnoxious teenage jocks, the girls stumbling on their high heels, the sleezy DJ, right through to the late night kebab, and the roller-coaster taxi-ride home.
Lucky Eric, Judd, Les and Ralph tell all the lurid details of a night at the club - looking at our drinking culture and reckless masculinity - all with great comedy, biting wit and a killer soundtrack.

Community forum on substance abuse and/or masculine culture, led by local council community workers. The actors reflect on the characters on the play, as well as on their own personal experiences, in a forum that invites local community members to share their related difficulties and, possibly, to offer solutions.
