In May 2018 we are putting on A Slice of Saturday Night at The Rep…..
A Slice of Saturday Night made its West End début at London’s Arts Theatre on September 27, 1989. The story tells of seven teenagers who dance and eye each other and flirt on a Saturday night at popular Club A Go Go in a town in the British provinces. Sue is going out with Gary, but he flirts with Penny and the other girls at every opportunity. Sharon and Rick like each other but are too shy to tell each other. Eddie is challenged by the boys to persuade “frigid” Bridget to “touch his whatsit” by closing time, over the course of the night he tries everything, with very little success. The owner of the club, ageing rocker Eric “Rubber-legs” De Vene, watches and lends an ear to the young people as they navigate the rituals of teenage fashion, music, sexual mores and relationships. The show has some great original music in it and promises to be great fun for all on stage and in the audience.
