CAUTIONS

Alcohol

An exciting, original play inspired by the legendary Bristol nightclub, the Dug Out. Based on real-life events, this is an uplifting tale of black and white teenage clubbers in the 1970s, set against a classic love story of thirty years earlier.

"This nostalgic show wins out as unassuming, feel-good fun ... it has a defiant, ramshackle charm." The Times.

Commissioned and produced by Splice Theatre and first performed at the Bristol Tobacco Factory, May - June 2013.
