There will be an After Dark discussion following the 19:45 performance on Fri, 17th Apr. Free to ticket holders.

Two one act plays devoted to those women and men who work clubs up and down the country. Share their lives, aspirations, disappointments and ability to brush themselves down and start again.

Rich in the most toe-curlingly funny observation with the cast taking on a host of different roles at the click of a finger,both plays veer from sidesplittingly funny to “where’s my hanky?” weepy. A must for all lovers of life.

Audience Reactions:

"Congratulations to a bunch of very talented people for giving us an excellent and entertaining night out! See this brilliant production if you can!" C.

"Brilliant portrayal of the clubbing scene, a trip down memory lane for me. Congratulations Hugh a great show. Extremely funny. Well worth a seeing."

"Of the very few theatres that put on their own productions, the Crescent certainly know a thing it two about quality and professionalism. The opening Night of Bouncers and Shakers hit both of these marks. The actors in both portrayals were excellent and the timing spot on. It was great to see a 'no fuss set' simple, yet effective. The women in Shakers did a fantastic job of portraying a wide range of characters, the males I found very humorous. The cast in both are on set the whole time and you are taken through the gammit of highs and lows with the characters. Bouncers was well acted with some very funny and very dark moments. This production is one to be seen, please don't miss it"
