New play bounces in to Mac
This season’s offering at the MAC is already getting people talking, as John Godber’s hit play Bouncers comes to Belfast for a three-week extended run from March 30.
Set over the course of one night in a 1980s Belfast nightclub, giving it a distinctive Northern Irish flavour, Bouncers is a darkly funny play about the characters and shenanigans of an 80s Belfast disco, as seen through the eyes of the club’s doormen.
Quick-witted and at times close to the bone, this rollercoaster of a play features four of Belfast’s finest comedic actors - Ciaran Nolan, Conor Grimes, Martin Maguire and Chris Robinson – who play all the parts. All the familiar characters from a typical night on the tiles make an appearance, from the cheesy DJ, to the kebab-shop proprietor and, of course, the foul-mouthed bouncers themselves.
As always with the MAC, you can expect something a little different, as all the action takes place within the exclusive Luminaire Club, transforming the theatre space into an intimate jazz-club experience complete with table service.
