Bible Bingo & Late Nite Catechism

Now at the Greenhouse Theater Center, Chicago


Make your way to the Greenhouse Theater Center in Chicago for some fun and laughs, perfect for the whole family.

Late Nite Catechism, written by Vicki Quade & Maripat Donovan, is an international hit comedy now starting its 29th year, featuring “Sister” teaching her own style of catechism to her class, that’s you, the audience members. The Chicago Reader calls it, “Gloriously funny!”

Bible Bingo is a comedy written by Vicki Quade about the Catholic culture of fundraising and bingo, featuring the character, Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun who now heads a fictitious archdiocese fundraising department. It’s now in its 12th year.

“Bible Bingo is a really good show,” says Theatre by Numbers. “A number of people get together to have some munchies and drinks. They play a few rounds of Bingo while they laugh, sing, chat, and goof around. It is a beautiful thing.”

 MEANWHILE: Add This to Your Reading List!

For years, Chicagoan Vicki Quade has been telling stories as a journalist, playwright, theater producer, and performer. So it’s not surprising she has a way of connecting with quirky characters during mundane, everyday occurrences.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF A CHICAGO KIND is a compilation of those stories, examining the lives that brush past her on city streets, in banks, at the grocery store or in restaurants. With a sharp wit and empathetic skill, Quade colorfully recreates brief scenarios that range from the comic to the bizarre to the dangerous – and all are unique to the spirit of the Windy City.

“Vicki Quade is a Chicago treasure with an abiding curiosity about the world around her, and sprinkled among these fly-on-the-wall stories are some valuable tips on things to see and experiences to have in our great city.” — Will Clinger, Producer and Host of WILD TRAVELS, a TV show that airs nationally on PBS.

“Anyone who loves or wants to know Chicago will enjoy Vicki’s keen humor and vivid memories. They invite us to find new ways to live and laugh, especially during this pandemic isolation. Maybe it will encourage some to write their own memories of human encounters!”

— Sister Patricia Crowley, O.S.B., Benedictine Sisters of Chicago
