A play by John Godber & Jane Thornton

This was Faringdon Dramatic Society’s contribution to the first Faringdon Arts Festival.

“Shakers” is a one-act play set in a trendy cocktail/wine bar in the North of England during Maggie Thatcher’s yuppie 80’s. The characters being four cocktail waitresses; however with each passing scene the actors are also called upon to play the many and varied clientele. The play is a sequence of quick-fire humour interspersed with really quite serious monologues, which starts off very light hearted.
