Location: Lounge at Bedford Players Community Theatre (in All Saints Anglican Church), 1408 Bedford Highway, Bedford
Come join fellow theatre-lovers for a fun evening as we read the play Bingo Babes by Isabel Duarte. Bedford Players’ play reads are an informal, fun gathering where everyone is welcome.
This is not an audition; there is no cost or obligation to participate. The event is open to everyone interested in reading this script as a group in a social setting.
Come meet some people interested in theatre. Have a laugh. Have a chat. Hear, or be part of reading, the play.
In this sensitive comedy, Bingo buddies Mary and Peggy face challenges to “improve” from different quarters. Mary’s daughters yearn for middle-class respectability, while Peggy must deal with Mary’s grudge against her “no-good,” charismatic boyfriend.
Both women must confront the upheavals that throw them for a loop, brought on by the riotous push and pull between what is familiar and comfortable for them to do, which is to hang out and play bingo, versus what others want them to do. The last thing these two old friends want to do is face change. Their lives are hard enough already.
