It’s the 8th Annual BFF Binge Fringe Festival of FREE Theatre, Oct 15 – Nov 19, the only FREE Fringe Festival in the nation, offering 38 in-person plays, workshops and family-oriented events thanks to generous grants from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission and Playhouse PALS. The BFF celebrates the range and depth of the human condition and the idea that theatre arts experiences are vital, transformative, and must be available for all.
My Dead Dad 9:00 PM, The Other Space, 50 min 15+
Writer-performer Sam Jae calls his play “the funniest show about death you’ve ever seen!” Sam can do this because he’s a comedy professional, experienced in comedy writing, stand-up and sketch performance. My Dead Dad is a memoir of Sam’s complicated but loving relationship with his dad. Dad was boldly assertive, sports-obsessed and macho. Sam was the opposite: unathletic, husky (okay, fat), but eager to please his Dad. Dad passes when Sam is fifteen, and the loss will inform Sam’s life for years to come. A letter that Sam finds from his father will affect Sam’s perspective on things in unexpected and surprising ways. Written & performed by Sam Jae. Directed by Anna-Marija Stojic. Produced by Jessica Lynn Johnson.
Also live-streaming through November 19.
