Bouncers

DSR Productions/RibbitRePublic 
Vancouver, Canada 
Playwright: John Godber

This hilarious play takes place in a provincial discotheque in the 1980s. Four tuxedoed male bouncers (who also “become” a variety of other characters) perform at a nonstop pace, from one irreverent bit of action and impersonation to another with virtuosic ease. Explosively funny and devastatingly satiric.
