Carriageworks Theatre (Main Space)
Carol, Adele, Niki and Mel work in an oh-so-trendy bar that is worse than hell. Welcome to the nostalgia soaked 80’s where every town has its cocktail bar, where everyone wants to be seen from the check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the luvvies to the local lads tittering at the thought of a “long slow comfortable screw”.
Shakers gives a wickedly funny glimpse of this world as seen through the eyes of the four long suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the plastic palms and the Pina Coladas
John Godber's sparkling writing builds on the success of his earlier 'Bouncers' to create a richly absorbing yet tellingly revealing modern comedy.
