Baptism by Fire
by Rex Lee

14 - 16 December 2023

Come one, come all, and experience the final work of legendary Bulgarian playwright Stanislav Hristov (1941-????). With the playwright’s unfortunate disappearance, only one scene was completed. 

Now if only someone informed the play’s two characters. Join them as they reckon with their meaningless lives and delay the play's inevitable end. 

This one-hour-long new work is an existential horror-comedy that explores male friendship and tackles the relationship between characters, the playwright, and the audience.
