Join us for this special event presented by Antaeus Theatre Company & the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library, as part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. We will begin with a shared listening of the audio play, followed by a discussion with Playwright Elizabeth Wong, Director Jennifer Chang, the cast of "Bingo Bitches" (Cici Lau, Karen Huie, and Jade Hykush), Artistic Director Bill Brochtrup, and Monterey Park Senior Librarian, Deborah Niblick. Together, we'll delve into the creative process behind the play, as we learn more about the local landscape and communities of Monterey Park.
91754: Monterey Park - "Bingo Bitches" by Elizabeth Wong:
It’s Bingo day at the local senior center and Kwan Tai is introducing her old friend Wong Tai to the game and all of its rituals, including her lucky potato. But who will be the big winner when nemesis Mrs. Boodakian turns up? Daubers, cards, and insults fly in this raucous comedy about claiming one’s space.
