"It is brilliant, a tour-de-force of writing, acting and direction"
Edmonton Journal




Staged with extreme simplicity, the play takes place in a provincial English disco during the 80's. Using the device of four tuxedoed male bouncers (who also "become" a variety of other characters) the action of the play moves from a group of predatory working-class youths, charmless and barely of drinking age; to their giggling female counterparts, who end up drunk and disheveled in their desperate search for a good time; and on to boisterous encounters in the men's room. 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.
