Scrappy independent theatre group Patch and Punnet has launched ticket sales for “Fika & Fishy”, a heartwarming comedy about the friendship between an innocent puppy and a jaded goldfish so obscene that the cash-strapped collective did not bother applying for funding from the National Arts Council.
“Fika & Fishy” is an endearing tale about the adorable relationship that develops between the duo, when they spend a little time every day learning about the meaning of friendship. But the play is not all gumdrops and sugarpops mind you: expect to see a fair bit of swearing, the occasional sex toy, and the looming question of one’s own mortality awkwardly hanging overhead.
To accommodate the performance, the second floor of a freshly renovated shophouse in Little India will be decked with soft carpets, cushioned floor chairs, beanbags, comfy pillows and, for audience members diligent enough to arrive early: a couch touted by the founders as the best seats in the house.
The young collective intends to broaden the definition of “going to the theatre” by putting up intimate theatrical performances in unconventional spaces and create a cozy and comfortable experience for its audience – words seldom associated with theatre in Singapore. The mission is to create theatre that is less of an event and more of a lifestyle, to get Singaporeans to reconsider how theatre can part of our shared identity.
Please note that the performance is not suitable for kids.
