It’s a wrap! After two sold-out performances, we’d like to thank everyone for the hard work given for this wonderful experience and great fun for all involved. See below for the original Fringe 2017 posting.


BCT’s Fringe Festival 2017 is an informal, fun night of theatre which is comprised of 8 separate short productions featuring first-time performers and old hands alike. Some of the presentations are finished productions and others are still a work in progress. All are simply staged and good fun; we hope you will support BCT and Bangkok theatre in general by attending!

They need to talk, but is Hannah really the best person to dispense relationship advice?

A faded star of the silent screen encounters for the first time a screenwriter for sound
movies. One wields images and the other bids words. This scene from the acclaimed
musical “Sunset Boulevard”, singularly captures the plight and power of Norma Desmond, the show’s tragic heroine. Is a picture really worth a thousand words? Let her song be the judge!

Directed by Ethan Oulton
Two blue-collar Mesopotamian construction workers are handed a provocative task: Build the Tower of Babel—or else. How many stones does it take to get to heaven, anyway?

Opening Numbers is a performance of the opening sequences of two musicals that are currently being written by Preeyakit ‘Fox’ Buranasin. The first sequence, ‘Have You Some Change Stranger,’ is the opening song for Satang and Penny. The second sequence – which includes two songs, ‘Just Next Door’ and ‘The Debate’ – starts Professor Atheist.

Do we really say what we mean when the big bad world starts to get too big for us? What would you do if you had the chance to say what you really think without any repercussions? Well this is the question facing Kenaf, our down and out everyman, a man whose life is not his own but yet a man whose life is about to drastically change. Watch as our Kenaf navigates and hopefully triumphs over the tricky waters of a difficult life and the crazy characters that surround him. Mediocrity is an absurd and grotesque comedy that borrows elements from both the Commedia Del’Arte and Burlesque traditions to send up doctors, wives, brutality and death.

Sure Thing is a short comic play by David Ives featuring a chance meeting of two characters, Betty and Bill, whose conversation is continually reset by the use of a ringing bell, starting over when one of them responds negatively to the other. Think of it as the romantic equivalent of Groundhog Day.
By Joshua James
Directed by Suman Tharan
A Gay Thing by Joshua James in a short comedic play that explores the sexuality of a straight guy, Ryan, as he shares a drink and some intimate details with his gay buddy Carl. All gay guys at one point or other have had to endure this same awkward conversation with their straight pals, and the show is guaranteed to make you laugh your ass off!
