Overall, Bouncers In my opinion is about four lads and four ladies getting ready for a night out, and in the end, it was all a waste of time.

The first scene establishes character and personality. Eric begins by welcoming the audience; Eric being the one who introduces the play and who the audience first set eyes on conveys his authority above the other three bouncers.

Eric continues with a rap, which illustrates the time of which the play is being set, the rap conveys a contemporary atmosphere. The next voice we hear is the voice of Judd, he instantly portrays his dim-witted self, by answering a question that has no significance to what has been asked. "Put on your clothes", "From the C&A".

The radio scene is un-clear; this is done by purpose, so that when the ladies are at the hairdressers they are able to criticize the radio broadcast. This could be because they do not understand what is going on, Godber tries to convey the stereotype of women being un-sophisticated by setting them in a hairdressers, and not understanding an issue which does not concern fashion.

Eric states that the radio gets on his "Bloody nerves"; straight after this Judd changes the conversation to something, they all can relate to which is the "new Alberto Balsam" a shampoo. The scene goes on to gossip about another person namely "Rosie", Godber tries setting a typical mothers meeting at a hairdressers.

The scene comes to a stand whereby Judd who plays Elaine, announces she is going to the "Dragonara Casino" This gets the others in shock, as it goes against the stereotype of men being the only ones who gambled. Bouncers here, tries to show the idea of stereotypes being broken. It seems Bouncers is a rebellious play.

The scene switches to the Barbers whereby Ralph is reading "dirty magazines". In this scene Godber conveys the thickness of the men as well, trying to portray the fact that the men are only educated in the sexual analogy ...
