ART & THEATER

Taxi Radio

This play by Fullfat Theatre vocalizes the fractured daily lives of Bangkokians through four mutually exclusive stories told at once. The play, written by veteran playwright Nophand Boonyai, adopts the concept of an old-timey radio drama (the clue's in the name), meaning the performance is largely auditory rather than visual. Four actors narrate four night-time stories, back and forth, from different walks of Bangkok life, delving into the social, spiritual and political problems currently overwhelming society.

 

Daily through Feb 17, 7pm. 5/F, Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre (BACC), 939 Rama 1 Rd. B600 (B300 for students). In Thai with English subtitles.
