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 vary from Lager-Lout to Nightclub Tart, Manager to DJ, Drunken Hopeful to Drunken Brawler.
Bouncers is a contemporary, bawdy, fast paced and funny look at the night life of any big city.
Win a double pass to the official opening night of _Bouncers on Friday 14 March. Just tell us how many characters are played out by the bouncers!
Competition drawn randomly at 3pm on Thursday 13 March.
Congratulations to Erin who was our winner last week!
