Bingo & the sea : two plays by Edward Bond( Book )

Bingo : scenes of money and death ; [and, Passion] by Edward Bond( Book )

42 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Bingo' uses the last days of a brooding and unheroic William Shakespeare to accuse art and capitalism of vile inhumanity. Historical evidence suggests that not long before his death Shakespeare agreed to the enclosure of common land near Stratford, which was beneficial to landowners such as Shakespeare, but disastrous for small tenants and the parish's poor. For Bond this incident is laced with damning echoes of King Lear's injustices, and motivates his portrayal of the writer as a bourgeois and apolitical capitalist, more occupied with his profits and rents than with the distress of those who depended on the land. 'Bingo' is a thorny cry against exploitation and passivity. It was first performed in 1973 at the Northcott Theatre, Exeter

He is then suddenly kidnapped, his captors holding him hostage until the demands of the strikers are met.
