Four Men, One Night, Twenty Four Characters, One Job . . . Bouncers

As the mighty guardians of our nightclubs Bouncers sometimes get a little bored of their job - their only joy is playing with the hopefuls attempting to get into their bar. Bouncers' shows clients and Bouncers alike trying to deceive everyone; especially themselves.

Bouncers is set in a typical Wellington nightclub where the not so typical Bouncers depict the clientele's eclectic, odd, drunken and down right weird behavior. Performed by four actors, the multiple roles are demanding, varying from Lager-Lout to Nightclub Tart, Manager to DJ, Drunken Hopeful to Drunken Brawler.

Bouncers is a contemporary, bawdy, fast paced, funny look at the night life of any big city, as told by the big men who protect the streets.

"Having trained all the 'boys' at different times, and then seen the work they have done together, we are immensely pleased, and proud of Bouncers. The New Zealand College of Performing Arts prides it's self on offering high quality training relevant to working in the professional performing arts industry. Bouncers at BATS is proof of this. A production that began life in one of the College's rehearsal studios in Poruira is now bursting into the downtown Wellington Theatre scene!" - Richard Finn, Director NZCOPA
