Dark Comedy

  “The ideas and sometimes the actors ricochet around the stage with such energy and scattershot purpose in Adam Rapp’s BINGO WITH THE INDIANS that they might be in a pinball machine. A dark comedy that starts with a sitcom premise and finally invokes questions about the meaning of life, the play spins out of control, but that forgivable chaos comes from a writer who hasn’t reined in his overabundance of ideas.   The entire play is set in a shabby New England motel where three members of a New York theater group have arrived with a scheme: They’ll steal the cash box from the local church bingo (it happens to be Indian night) and use the money to rent a performance space back home….   BINGO WITH THE INDIANS explores themes that run through other Rapp plays (most prominently, RED LIGHT WINTER; most recently, AMERICAN SLIGO): how far people will go to get what they want; how they face desires they barely knew they had; how grief seeps to the surface, and pent-up rage explodes.”Caryn James, The New York Times
