Looking forward to see this play which begins this week.
KL Performing Arts Center (KLPAC) Presents
'I want my son to sit beside his 'special friend' as he sits beside me at my wedding'.
'Bottom, Top' is a story about a 52-year-old mother, Bertha, who is about to re-marry. As she prepares the guest list with her son, Melvin, they screen through the women and 'men' in their lives to invite as guests for the limited 150 seats at the Oversea Restaurant. Secretly, Bertha is trying to find a seating partner, and ultimately a partner for her single gay son Melvin, and suggests men in her life such as the 'market butcher's son' and the unmarried 40-year-old distant uncle who is suspected to be gay. Melvin, however, thinks he has better taste.
Follow the two as Bertha remembers her past flings and Melvin educates her on the social construct of his 'different' world.
This comedy will see the return of FARIDAH MERICAN to our stage. Faridah is set to appear alongside the playwright himself, MARK BEAU DE SILVA, a two-time BOH Cameronian Arts Award nominee for Best Original Script. To top this powerhouse mix, the play will be directed by KLPac’s Artistic Director himself, JOE HASHAM.
