About Bingo!

“Have you ever done a bad thing, like really bad?”
“Yeah. I started Breaking Bad when our Davey was on the night-shift.”

Grid Iron Theatre Company and Stellar Quines Theatre Company present Bingo!, a new musical comedy focusing on lives of six characters and one fateful night at the bingo.

Every week more than 2 million women pour into local bingo halls across the UK, each one hoping that all elusive HOUSE will change their fortunes forever. Daniella’s one of those women. Except she isn’t just hopeful. She’s desperate. She needs Lady Luck to smile down on her tonight. She’s done a bad thing. No, a really bad thing and if her card doesn’t have those winning numbers, she’s going to have to resort to desperate measures to take home that prize money.

With cracking original songs, a lot of banter and cheeky humour, Bingo! is co-written by Anita Vettesse & Johnny McKnight, with music by Alan Penman and directed by Stellar Quines Artistic Director Jemima Levick.

Cast of Bingo! includes stars of British stages and television such as Louise McCarthy (Daniella) of BBC’s Scot Squad and Two Doors Down, Wendy Seager (Mary) who played Susan in Killing Me Softly and featured in Still Game, Barbara Rafferty (Joanna), BBC River City, Brave New World, Rab C Nesbitt, Jo Freer (Ruth) who starred in Dundee Rep’s Sunshine on Leith as well as River City, Darren Brownlie (Donny) known from BBC Scotland’s Scot Squad, and Jane McCarry (Betty), Still Game's Isa and Scottish pantomime star who also played Dolly in Tony Roper’s The Steamie.

Bingo! receives its world premiere at Assembly Hall in Edinburgh. The show then goes on tour to venues around Scotland, including Stirling, Ayr, Musselburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bingo! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
