Adam Rapp’s new one act Bingo With The Indians opened at The Flea on November 8, 2007. Directed by the playwright the tale is a fascinating jumble, but nonetheless hauntingly memorable with an excellent cast that features an outstanding performance by Evan Enderle as Steve, the story’s emotional center. Bingo sets a disgruntled East Village theater company in a seedy New England motel, where they have come to rip off the local bingo game. Rapp, a prolific writer, novelist, filmmaker, and a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Red Light Winter, always bears watching and Bingo With The Indians is no exception.
The production stars The Bats, the resident acting company of The Flea, with sets by John McDermott, lights by Miranda Hardy, costumes by Daphne Javitch and sound by Brandon Wolcott. Performances through December 22 at The Flea, 41 White Street, between Broadway and Chruch Steets. For tickets call 212-352-3101.
