The play follows the theme that every town has its Shakers, the oh-so trendy bar in the main street where the neon bright light shines out into the night tempting passers-by.
The production takes a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the plastic palms and Pina Coladas in this revised version of the popular play.

“We can’t wait to bring live events back.”
