Fat Kids Are Harder to Kidnap: 3D

Fat Kids Are Harder to Kidnap: 3D
Get a concentrated shot of Singapore contemporary culture with 31 all-new original plays in an hour, about everything from terrorism to Gangnam style.

The final instalment of this trilogy is a tech-savvy series of sketches that discuss everything from racism to ‘Gangnam Style’, terrorism to ah lians.  Melissa Sim, 31, artistic director of local group How Drama explains the concept behind the show.

‘The audience is very much a part of our production, but they are never put on the spot. All they have to do is call out the number of the play they wish to watch, and the actors will perform that play. Without the audience, the show stalls, in fact, there is no show. There are 31 plays so there is really something for everyone. We’ve got plays inspired by viral videos and Singapore’s recent spate of sex scandals, and we’re always offering new perspectives on everyday occurrences such as your train ride to work, or that first date that you will always remember – for all the wrong reasons. Everyone should come to watch the show. How often do you get to shout at actors and get them to perform for you? It’s really the best way to unwind after a stressful day.’
