Wakefield Drama Festival 2018

Shakers

Theatre Royal Wakefield welcomes the 18th Wakefield Drama Festival. This annual event showcases the work of the best amateur drama groups across the region. Seven plays in seven days presented by seven different companies; a mixture of comedy, tragedy and drama.

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.

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.
