Bouncers - 1990s Remix (Revised Version)
Published by Josef Weinberger
4 Male 1 Female
Performing at a nonstop pace, the four actors move from one irreverent bit of action-and impersonation-to another with virtuosic ease and, in the end, conjure up a telling portrait of a generation doomed to a humdrum present and a diminished future, whose "moral decay" is, perhaps, the inevitable by-product of a society that has moved from the glory days of a powerful empire to a foundering socialist state no longer able to fully accommodate the aspirations of its people
A London hit which went on to a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and a successful presentation in New York City, this fast-paced, explosively funny, and devastatingly satiric play employs brilliant theatricality to provide an incisive (and moving) portrait of contemporary England's working-class youth-a generation with "nothing to achieveno options left"

"Hip, outrageous, delirious, demented. Choose your superlatives, but don't miss this tribal rite" ~ LA Herald
"This is a courageous and vital piece of theatre" ~ LA Weekly
