The international smash hit comedy returned! Lucky lads are back and telling the tales of a Yorkshire nightclub. Of lads and lasses, sticky floors and shots galore, and the early morning taxi home, all under the watchful eyes of the bouncers. Written by the multi award winning John Godber, this modern classic sees the boys catapulted into the 21st century!
First thing I have to mention was the fact the actors dressed in their bouncer outfit walked around the foyer before the show acting as bouncers. I didn’t expect something like this, but I thought it was hilarious and a brilliant idea.
The lighting throughout was a very nice and simple touch too, using different colours to show gender/character switch or different settings. Such a simple idea was very effective in telling the story, worked very well and brought a lot of humour to the show. My favourite scene had to be out of the dancing scene where Susie leaves the man as my dad said it ‘showed what clubbing is really like and it brought back so many memories’.
All the actors were superb. Peter McMillan as Plain Elaine did some of the funniest acting in the show. The characterisation of all the actors for their roles was sublime and I wish I could watch it again and again.
This show gets:
Overall, I will say that this was one of the funniest shows I have ever seen with contemporary music and an updated script to boot. I was laughing all throughout and was thoroughly impressed.
