'The Lamproom Daily' - Day 90 - 'Shakers Re-Stirred'

Kick off your summer in style with a visit to ‘Shakers’ – an oh-so-trendy cocktail bar where everyone wants to be seen.  Nicky, Adele, Carol and Mel – your long-suffering waitresses – invite you to pull up a table, order a drink and relax in their company.  The four girls try to forget their aching feet and the long night ahead by dreaming of very different lives whilst mimicking and mocking their endless stream of customers.  From girls on a dress-to-impress night out to lads on the make, all are fodder for the sharp observations of ‘The Shakers’. 

Written by John Godber and Jane Thornton, the sensitive and witty dialogue allows the audience intimate glimpses of what lies behind the practiced smiles and pleasantries of the young waitresses. 

‘Shakers Re-Stirred’ is a well-known and well-loved play, written as a follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Bouncers’…. 

…… definitely one to be shaken not stirred!
