Slice Of Bingo Life Down The Theatre

A few months ago we heard about a play in the north of England that depicted life in the bingo halls. You were even given a bingo ticket as an audience member and could win a ‘fantastic prize’ during the show!

Well this weekend there was a performance of another bingo related play at London’s Hackney Empire called ‘Strictly bingo’ a clip of which you can see here:

As you can see it details the bingo world in a pretty animated way (I can even forgive the actor calling the bingo numbers announcing 91 and 92!!!!!). But I deny any player or bingo worker to say that they haven’t seen a similar situation in there local club!!!

The play centres around a player winning £20,000 and refusing to share her winnings with her playing partner (a familiar tale if ever I heard one!) whilst all this is going on other relationships are formed and broken both from the players and the bingo staff.

It sounds like a really good show,and something I would have loved to see. Let’s hope it returns again by popular demand..
