Archie Moore has big dreams of stardom and it looks like tonight may be his lucky break. He has two obstacles: his hormone-ravaged brother Pinkie and the fact that Sid won’t even let them play!

Throw in Jack and Jillian’s rocky romance, Rita’s pulse-racing twist lessons, a few sneaky pints out the back and sooner or later someone’s bound to step on someone else’s toes... Flagons & Foxtrots hits a personal note with everyone, the jokes will have you rolling in the aisles and you won’t be able to help but tap your feet to the beat of the Archie Moore Trio. Book now
