The international smash hit comedy returns!

Lucky Eric, Judd, Les and Ralph are back and telling the tales of a Yorkshire nightclub. Of lads and lasses, sticky floors and shots galore, and the early morning taxi home, all under the watchful eyes of the bouncers. Written by the multi award winning John Godber, this modern classic will see the boys catapulted into the 21st century! With contemporary music and an updated script to boot, this one’s worth getting dressed up for!
