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. Read more …

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.

The critical consensus

It’s moderately fun, but it really should have been a winner.

***(*)(*)Michael Cox, Across the Arts

Glittering, dazzling and entertaining Bingo! is a comedy delight and essential entertainment.

****(*)S.E. Webster, The Reviews Hub, 09/03/2018

Even as the plot does lose it's way, it is still an enjoyable night out with a lot of laughs, shocks and silly songs.

Seth Ewin, British Theatre Guide, 09/03/2018

Bingo! provides an all- round terrific night out that deserves a full house every night.

****(*)Irene Brown, Edinburgh Guide, 09/03/2018

Ortonesque tragi-comic shut-in by Grid Iron and Stellar Quines is hilarious and thought-provoking.

***(*)(*)Ken Wilson, The Wee Review, 09/03/2018

A musical about women at the bingo would seem a natural for a warm-hearted, reassuringly couthy comedy. Instead, Bingo! ends up as a much swearier, somewhat darker affair that provides entertainment but is let down by its structure.

***(*)(*)Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre, 09/03/2018

A show that looks at best interesting, moving and full of potential, and at worst a chaotic and unfunny mess.

***(*)(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 10/03/2018

There is enough to recommend this eccentric musical, not least the spectacle of Rafferty on a wild-eyed amyl nitrate and energy drink binge.

***(*)(*)Lorna Irvine, The List, 12/03/2018

There’s a mighty fine play in here somewhere, but it needs a heap of work to chisel away the excess baggage it’s currently saddled with before it can fully connect. While there is much to enjoy on a surface level, at the moment it feels like a first draft work-in-progress for something bigger, brasher and brighter yet to come.

***(*)(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 12/03/2018

The show’s virtues never quite add up to a satisfying whole.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Radcliffe, 14/03/2018

A carefully considered cut of half-an-hour of material would, one suspects, enable this fabulously cast, often uproariously funny, sometimes quite moving musical to pack a stronger dramatic punch.
