Shakers 1.jpg

"There were some lovely moments of physical comedy under the direction of Claudia Kinahan (who also directed a personal favourite and award winner Knowing Nathan at the Complex in 2018), as the four slip between characters with ease, using accents and movement to inhabit each new character."

-Laura Marriott Writing


Welcome to Shakers!
We meet our four waitresses among the hustle and bustle of gossip and spilled cocktails. As they navigate the claustrophobia, and chaos of a busy bar we are given an insight into their lives which is at times poignant, and dangerously funny. Shakers is a timeless exploration of friendship and courage, and what it really mean to work in the service-industry.
