OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Bernard Farrell 

  • Author Notes

    Devised by Moving Theatre Company, scripted by Bernard Farrell.

  • Synopsis

    Set in a Bingo hall, Legs 11 is a story about women, squalling babies, bingo, and valium. Lined up opposite them are men, pub-talk, daydreaming and irresponsibility. Typically, there is little communication between the sides. The plot is interwoven with actual games of bingo where the audience participate and the winners are presented with comic 'booby' prizes!
