Four thuggish nightclub bouncers
take to the stage in Larbert next month with jokes,
bad attitude...and handbags!
Tryst Theatre are staging the smash-hit comedy Bouncers
in the town’s Dobbie Hall, with well-known actors
Jim Allan, Alan Clark, Brian Paterson and Brian Tripney
playing the four tough doormen.
Described as “outrageous five-star X-rated hilarity”,
Bouncers by John Godber is the tale
of one Friday night in a Northern nightclub, with the
non-stop action focusing on the exploits of the four
men and their drunken customers – with the Tryst
quartet playing over fifty different parts.
In the tatty glamour of the club we meet the raucous
lager-swilling lads, the lipsticked, tipsy girls...even
the smooth-talking DJ, the hairdresser, the late-night
kebab man and many more.
And if they’re playing four giggling girls out
to have fun in the club, the guys need handbags!
Tryst Theatre first performed the multi award-winning
play in the old Larbert High School in 1992 and have
decided to bring it back twenty-two years on.
Jim Allan and Alan Clark once again take on the parts
of Lucky Eric and Les while Brian Paterson and Brian
Tripney join them as Ralph and Judd.
Jim, who also directs, said: “Fast, frantic and
fantastically funny, Bouncers is an
extraordinary piece of physical theatre. Already tickets
are going fast as word spreads about this amazing play.”
Bouncers, which has strong language,
will be staged in Larbert’s Dobbie Hall from December
8-10 at 7.30pm nightly. Tickets - £10 and £7
(concessions) - are available from the Tryst 24-hour
booking line on 07597 981 949 or from the Box Office
on 01324 715886.
