After their debut as the newest addition to the Fayetteville’s arts community, The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre remounts Bombs, Babes, and Bingo, an original play by Merri Biechler, which was presented to Fayetteville audiences in August. They are remounting the play in Fayetteville again for one night only before taking the show to Oklahoma City, and finally to New Orleans, where they have been invited to perform as a part of the New Orleans Fringe Festival.

The theatre company worked last summer on Bombs, Babes, and Bingo in a performance lab and experimented with form and content before producing the play, which is performed in random order. The structure of the play is determined by the pull of a bingo ball, and mirrors the dissolution of the mind and life of a bomb scientist who may have been injured in a blast.

The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre is already receiving national recognition, thanks to Robert Ford of Theatre Squared. They are featured in American Theatre magazine as “more evidence of a burgeoning theatre scene in Northwest Arkansas.” Ford described Bombs, Babes, and Bingo as “edge of your seat fascinating.””
