About The Show

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. 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.

Featuring barnstorming original numbers, a lot of banter and cheeky humour, join multi-award winning Scottish Theatre companies Grid Iron and Stellar Quines for an unforgettable night at Bingo!
