Stewarton Drama Group


Stewarton Drama Group are all set to bring John Godber’s celebrated play ‘Bouncers’ to Ayrshire this Autumn. And news that the award-winning group are staging the popular show has already sparked a rush for advance ticket orders.

The smash-hit comedy/drama will be staged in the Stewarton Area Centre at 7.30pm on Thursday 9th, Friday 10th and Saturday 11th October 2014 to open Stewarton Drama Group’s 42nd season of drama.

This fast-moving, night-time comedy is John Godber’s most performed work. It made the National Theatre’s list of the top 100 plays of the 20th century and is studied widely in schools.

Acutely observant, sharply funny, and often hard-hitting, the play relies on the four performers morphing throughout the play from menacing doormen to a gaggle of flirtatious handbag-wielding girls to lager-swilling, lairy lads and a myriad of other characters.

The audience are in for a real treat as they are taken on a compelling, and at times shocking, journey covering every aspect of the Big Friday Night Out, from its optimistic start, through the booze-fuelled nightclub mating games to the sober early hours reality as the world-weary bouncers sift through the debris of a night they’ve seen a million times before.

The talented quartet of actors who will portray the twilight world of the four doormen in SDG’s production are Jim Goldie who plays ‘Lucky Eric’, David Robertson who plays ‘Judd’, Brian Smith who plays ‘Les’ and Gavin Cook who plays ‘Ralph’ .

Director of the show, Nancy McPherson said:

“I’m very excited to be directing this powerful play which certainly packs a punch.

“At times hilarious, it is also sometimes shocking, poignant and disturbing.

“The play never shies away from the harsh truths of urban night life and John Godber’s dialogue is always slick and authentic.

“In this production, I’ve tried to use music and movement to punctuate the many fast-moving scenes which are sure to engage the audience and keep them involved in this ground-breaking play.

“If you’ve never been clubbing, now’s your chance to experience it like it is !

“If you have…’ll have some idea of what you’re in for !”

All tickets for ‘Bouncers’ are priced at a flat rate of £8.00 each – which includes a complimentary glass of wine on arrival – and are on sale every day at Stewarton Library.

Alternatively, tickets can be reserved by emailing [email protected]

A licensed bar of wine will be on sale throughout the evening.

The play contains adult content and is suitable for over 18s only.

DON’T MISS IT ! It’s gonna be a night to remember!
