Bite My Thumb Production
By John Godber
Carol, Adele, Niki and Mel work in an oh-so-trendy bar that is worse than hell. Welcome to the 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.

Hatfield Spotlight Theatre Group Presents:
A comedy by Janet Shaw
It’s darts time again at the Frog and Duck in downtown Barnsley. The girls’ team have made the final again and the lads, well the lads are struggling. The excitement of the competition is overshadowed when a routine medical examination jeopardises the rock-solid marriage of landlord Alan and his wife Kath.
Kath is pregnant, but Alan has had a vasectomy! Could it be that someone at the pub, other than the darts team, has been playing away?
On the lads team, it’s honesty time for Gary, when he has to face the truth about himself, and it’s crunch time for compulsive liar Danny, when he meets his female match.
Throw in an interfering mother-in-law for Alan, an unintelligible Irish man and the town’s worst dieters and you have the recipe for a night of hilarity, fused together with just the right amount of pathos.
