Bingo! - 1985 - Off-Off-Broadway

Bombastic Vern, superstitious Patsy, and ditsy, man-crazy Honey are addicted to Bingo! And no little hurricane is going to keep these die-hard players from their weekly game. Tonight is also the yearly celebration of the birth of Bingo and a tribute to its founder, Edwin S. Lowe. When the storm knocks out power at the Bingo Hall, Patsy and Honey remind each other of an ominous night fifteen years ago that began in the same way. In flashback, Honey tells us about the night Vern and her best friend, Bernice, had their falling out. Predictably, Bernice's sweet, yet headstrong daughter, Alison, enters the Bingo hall in disguise - Bernice's health is failing, and Alison is determined, with the help of Bingo, to reunite her mother with her long-lost best friend, Vern. With a smart, funny script and a bouncy, hummable score Bingo turns Grandma's favorite form of gambling into fun-loving musical theater. Audience members will also compete in three games for spectacular prizes! Did I hear someone yell "Bingo?" We have a winner!

As the San Francisco Bay Area reaches six months of sheltering-in-place, the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for mental health have become more prevalent than ever. In response, The Marsh is bringing back virtual LIVE performances (with post-event discussions) of Brian Copelanda??s captivating drama a?oeThe Waiting Period.a??
