Adam Rapp, award-winning playwright and finalist for the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, staged a dry run of his play Bingo with the Indians at the Portland Playhouse this summer (when his brother Anthony Rapp of RENT fame was around to star). This winter, the Playhouse brings Bingo back for an extended, un-dry engagement. The play follows four sketchy New York City characters as they hatch a scheme to hold up a bingo game so they can fund their next production, "a scatological spin on Chekov's Three Sisters." Bingo with the Indians is a less cerebral, more raucous, show than the Portland Playhouse has been offering lately, but there should still be enough theater imitating life, imitating theater to satisfy Portland's thinking masses.
