Review: The Attic Theatre – Limitless Productions Presents – Shakers & Bouncers

Bouncers & Shakers take to the stage for their limited engagement at Royston’s The Attic Theatre before they head to the Welwyn Drama Festival.

Bouncers & Shakers, both directed by award-winning director Peter Heppelthwaite, tell stories of London nightclubs in the infamous 1980s. With all the music and references to match, Bouncers follows 4 door men and Shakers follows 4 waitresses as they explain the story of a night out in London. These hilarious plays will have you cracking up, tearing up and reminiscing on your time in the 80s.

MEET THE BOUNCERS! written by John Godber, and directed by Peter Heppelthwaite and assistant directed by Iona Berry. This cast of 4 is made of award-winning actors who also train at Limitless Academy.
