BOMBS, BABES AND BINGO by Merri Biechler
Presented by Mortar Theatre Company, BOMBS, BABES AND BINGO is a world premiere play from Merri Biechler that deals with a war, the fallibility of memory, the division of family and the struggle by a scientist to make sense of his life and work after a traumatic brain injury. Dennis is the scientist, father and bomb maker. His wife keeps busy enrolled in Clown College and his daughter walks among the destruction her father's designs have caused searching for meaning. Bookended by two fixed scenes, the additional scenes' order is determined by a random pull of a bingo ball, creating a myriad of possibilities of story, character and comedy that plays out differently each performance. As Dennis' broken synapses fire and misfire in hope of making any connection, the pull of the bingo ball randomly summons forth his memories. Neither the audience nor the cast knows the order until the moment the bingo ball number is called. As a result, each performance of BOMBS, BABES AND BINGO is unique to that audience with 3,628,800 possible outcomes.
