The Queen of Bingo

March 23-27, 2022

Sis and Babe are middle-aged sisters who play bingo to stave off loneliness. The widowed Sis starts the game by putting her numerous good luck charms and bingo accoutrements in place, creating a kind of secular altar on the table. Babe, we soon learn, is similarly compulsive — she routinely locks herself up at home and overeats. The conversation between the two as they sit at their table explores the worlds of Bingo, family ties, diet crazes, widowhood, hot flashes and winning! But it’s the sisters’ own sins, and their hidden guilt and shame about them, that become the focus. Sis’s bingo habit allows her “to feel like a big shot every once in a while” amid an otherwise life of quiet desperation, but also isolates her as she hides in the secret addiction and costs her more than she wins. Even more dramatic is Babe’s revelation of her binge eating that’s growing increasingly difficult to hide as none of her clothes fit and her prayer becomes “I will not buy a size 18, Lord, do you hear me?”
