DECEMBER 1 (Until Dec 3)

Thicker Than Water

Douglas Lim at The Bee at Publika Kuala Lumpur
In countries all over the world, very different people share the same dream: The American Dream. They don’t just want to live like Americans: they want to BE AMERICAN. 

After decades of absorbing American pop culture, two Malaysian screenwriters set out to write the perfect American film but which is it? The liberal-arthouse-movie which America needs or the white-saviour-summer-action blockbuster movie which it wants? 

Low on sleep, high on caffeine and short on time, these two dreamers must find common ground quickly if they are to achieve their pursuit of identity, fame and fortune.

Gavin Yap at The Bee at Publika Kuala Lumpur

Can these two Malaysians convince America that they are more American than apple pie? It’s go time! Take me out to the ball game and bring the rain! USA! USA! USA!

Starring Douglas Lim and Gavin Yap.

Thicker Than Water will premiere at Joe's Pub, The Public Theater, New York City in May 2018. This version in Kuala Lumpur began a couple of days ago and is a part of a month long creative development culminating with 8 showings where audiences will be invited to give their feedback after each show.
