It is hard to believe it is more than 30 years since John Godber first put on a production of his outrageous parody of Saturday Night Fever.

And it is getting on for 20 since I last saw it while living in Hull.

But on Thursday of next week (February 12) at Peterborough’s Key Theatre, Ralph, Les, Judd and Lucky Eric will be preparing for another night on the door, another crowd on the floor.

They are the original men in black as they tell the tale of one night in a Yorkshire disco in the 1980s.

All the gang are out on the town, the boys, the girls, the cheesy DJ, the late night kebab man and the taxi home, all under the watchful eyes of the Bouncers.

The shots are slamming and the cocktails are flowing free.

Susie and the girls are out on the town, Kev and his mates are up for anything.

Slow dances and quick gropes, high hopes and dented dreams, chips and late-night kebabs - and the Bouncers see it all!

It’s a multi award winning play written and directed by Godber, voted by the National Theatre as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, and on this tour featuring a frightening array of northern talent.

See Bouncers at the Key Theatre on 12, 13 and 14 February, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £16 (£13 for under U18s) and are available from the Key Theatre box office on 01733 207239 or visit www.vivacity-peterborough.com
