Bouncers

1 December

The Reject Theatre Company

Bouncers

By John Godber

John Godber’s play shows a night on the tiles from the point of view of the men on the door. It is a funny, energetic piece of highly theatrical storytelling where the men are at once themselves, and every character they happen to meet on a night at work at the nightclub. The central theme of Bouncers is universal: men after beer after women, and the beat goes on.

  • Performance starts at 7.45pm. Doors open at 7.15pm
  • Tickets £15. Concessions £13.50
  • Tel. 0345 017 8717

Thoroughly Modern Millie

By Richard Morris, Dick Scanlan and Jeanine Tesori

New York,1922. Millie Dillmount arrives from Kansas in search of a new life. Her plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name... or so he tells her.
Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.
