Elvis, strobe-lights and bumpin’ beats…Bouncers is a recipe for fun!

British playwright John Godber serves up a sweet-and-sour mix of late night fun and morning-after reality in the boisterous comedy, Bouncers. Inside the club, a DJ plays a thumping beat, drinks pour freely from the tap, and tigers are on the prowl for the best pair of legs in the tightest pair of jeans. It’s a recipe for absolute pleasure or absolute pain – and the men in black stand guard, ready to ensure that both are viable options. Bouncers cleverly interweaves four actors in a variety of roles, from the venomous vixen to the liquored-up lounge lizard. Directed by second-year M.F.A. student Marian Mantovani who, like the playwright, hails from Yorkshire, England, Bouncers promises a night you’ll never forget.

Bouncers runs in the Allen Bales Theatre Tuesday, Nov. 27, through Sunday, Dec. 2. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with 2 p.m. matinees Saturday and Sunday. Following the Saturday matinee is a Talk Back, in which audience members can ask questions of the cast and crew. All tickets are just $6. (Price includes a $1 service fee.) Tickets can be purchased at the box office in Rowand-Johnson Hall Monday though Friday from 12 to 5 p.m. (205-348-3400) or anytime online at
