The taming of the big-headed monster

Jaturachai Srichanwanpen brings one of his favourite books to the stage

- +

Whenever Jaturachai Srichanwanpen, or "Chuan", can get away from running his shoe shop in Yaowarat, he turns all his energy into a creative force in the dramatic world he likes to inhabit. Though never a student of drama, the 27-year-old has been involved in theatre since high school in various capacities, from performing, songwriting and scriptwriting to directing. 

His latest play, Big Head Monster, an adaptation from an Ong-Art Chaicharncheep novel about the adventures of a monster and a carp, starts next Thursday at Democrazy Theatre Studio.

Even though he has adapted, written and directed quite a few plays before, such as Plew (Blown) and Gon Joob (Before I Had My First Kiss), and has recently set up his own theatre group called By The Way, this play is to be the biggest production yet in his theatrical career.
