One of the hits of the 1990 season was John Godber’s Bouncers directed and designed by David Bell.
Of Bouncers, critic Adrian Kiernander wrote that it was a long time since he had seen an audience as “wildly excited” during a La Boite production, a response to the fast-paced ensemble work of Charles Barry, Andrew Buchanan, Stephen Davis and Darryl Hukins.[i] Alison Cotes was “sick with hysteria” and described in her review “one of the funniest scenes I’ve ever seen on stage … Charles Barry and Andrew Buchanan miming a pornographic movie about a Swedish housewife stripping off, getting into the shower and being seduced by the postman”.[ii]
