Set in the shadowy portals of Mr. Cinder’s nightclub. Four bouncers stand and ponder the punters and the passing of their lives. They boast and argue with each other, looking for excuses to unleash their inner violence. Into this litany of misspent youth, the four straight-laced, Bouncers suddenly become young hairdressers, primping for their big night out ahead. Add a handbag and they’re on the disco floor. Add a leer and a slap of aftershave and they’re lads, trying to look old enough to be drinking, elbowing at the bar, downing the pints. Please note that this play contains mature themes not suitable for those under 16. General admission $24.00 at Carterton Events Centre, Friday 15 September 2017 8:00pm.
