It’s club night and the tracks are spinning. Two headliners crossfade between stories of love, sex, and losing their creative spark – set against a backdrop of precarious lives in urban London. Featuring original tracks inspired by early noughties and present-day R&B and garage, Bangers follows the highs and lows of two strangers struggling with their own pasts, while hurtling towards the future. All the while, the DJ continues to play, dropping words of wisdom and banger after banger. ‘A true masterpiece’ ***** (

★★☆☆☆ Kindly skip the hype

Beat Drop with BANGERS

* Urban Pulse. The genuine hustle of city life finds its rhythm in early 2000s nostalgia.
* Crowd Connection. Entertaining breach of the 4th wall by the DJ.

* Expectation Gap. With a name like "Bangers," where were the bangers? Expected more music-driven scenes.
* Lyrical Low. Writing occasionally missed the beat, leaving me wanting more.

Great show, an engaging storyline about two young people in London whose lives seem separate but are interconnected, set to a fun soundtrack. All 3 performers had great energy throughout which was contagious. The DJ booth set up in the Roundabout venue felt really original and we had great seats opposite the DJ, which I recommend to other audience members - it certainly did feel like we immersed in the performance

The actors are great - particularly the female lead who played multiple different characters so distinctly. The songs flow into and enhance the story, with both leads showing off lovely singing voices. For me, the show didn't have quite the emotional final impact it wanted to build to, but still a show I enjoyed.

The interjections from the DJ throughout the show, and the synergy between the cast and the crowd was excellent all evening.
