"Nathaya the theatre", a romantic comedy stage play with the theme of Thailand in 1940s, represents the country when Thai society and culture are starting to be influenced by western culture. This is a story of a guy who recently graduated from a foreign university and came back to visit his homeland. Never being able to ignore his mother’s order, he had to go to Nathaya theatre as a spy and find the way to help his mother acquire the land, on which Nhataya theatre was located, and turn into a profit for her business. There, he met a daughter of the theatre’s owner, who was the one who opened his eyes and taught him how beautiful Thai culture is. Would Pat still do what he was told? Or would he stand against his mother and help Nathaya theatre to gain its reputation back again? That is for you to find out at Thai Week Grand Show 2015, “Nathaya the theatre”.
