Strippers

October 16, 1990 to October 20, 1990

By Peter Terson

Directed by Sue Allen

Inspired by a television documentary, Peter Terson's play looks at the world of the North-East England strippers, centring on Wendy and Bernard, a young couple whose lives are up-ended when Wendy turns, reluctantly, to stripping to support the family after Bernard is made redundant. Although Bernard quite happily watches the "exotic dancers" over a couple of pints at the club, when it comes to his wife it's a different matter.
