Bangkok Community Theatre holds regular weekday evening online play readings at 7:30pm. Each week we choose a new script and share it with the participants in advance. Then we get together and read the play aloud on zoom, regularly switching up the roles so that everyone gets a chance to read, if they wish. Some BCT friends don't want to read; they just like to listen. That's okay, too.These play readings are open to anyone who wants to join! Just email: [email protected] to get the link. It's free and a great way to meet some other people who enjoy live theatre. Please join us; tell your friends.On Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 at 7:30pm (7:15 sign in), please join us to read a Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s 1956 tragi-comedy “The Visit."ABOUT THE PLAY:
Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s The Visit is a piercing, darkly comic story of a scorned woman’s ultimate revenge, exploring what dark deeds a desperate man can be pushed to.SYNOPSIS:
Claire Zachanassian, the world famous billionaire, is returning to her small hometown of Güllen after 45 years away. The town was once a thriving, prosperous area, but has since fallen on hard times. The impoverished Güllenites look to Claire as their only hope to save them from ruin. Her offer, though, comes with a price: justice. Claire will donate one billion dollars to the town if--and only if--they kill Alfred Ill, Claire’s former lover who abandoned and betrayed her all those years ago.
