In Act I, Dottie makes a comment that Margie can't afford to be playing bingo. How much money an entry fee would be for bingo? How much would bingo cards cost for the game? Do you get a certain number of cards with your entry fee? Can you buy more as well?
Although it varies, the standard entry fee for church bingo is around $15. This entry fee often comes with several bingo cards, though the amount you get with your entry fee varies by hosting institution. Usually, more packs of game cards are available for sale for additional money or "special" games. A single card can often cost around $3-$5, but very few serious bingo players are likely to play only one. While a percentage of the money raised goes to the hosting organization, the rest usually goes toward funding the cash prizes which can range from as low as $150 to a jackpot of $1000 or more. How much a person can win depends on how many people are playing as the jackpot is often the accumulated earnings for the night.
In Act II, Margie speculates that when Katherine asked to hear about Mike's childhood, she was "expecting something out of the Bowery Boys."
The Bowery Boys were a fictional comic "gang" from New York's Lower East Side featured in crime or mystery films in the 1940s and 50s.
In rehearsal last night, the question of what the name Gobie was short for came up. From what I can find, it's not a nickname! It is, in fact, a relatively rare American male first name more commonly spelled "Goby." Some sources report the name as meaning "an audacious man."
