CBC Drama Special Michel Tremblay's Les Belles-soeurs

Germaine, a Montreal housewife, has won a million Gold Star stamps (stamps given out by grocery stores, which customers stuck into little booklets and exchanged for goods like barbecues and lawn chairs) and has invited all the women she knows to come over and help her stick them into the booklets. As they stick, the women discuss the men in their lives, the church and their small joys. In one elaborate and thrilling spoken-choral passage, the women tell of the joys of bingo. Germaine doesn't realize until the play's conclusion that while the women are all talking, they are also robbing her of her Gold Star stamps. – Canadian Theatre Encyclopedia
