Bangkok

“… sad, thought-provoking …”
Jessica Padykula, SceneandHeard.ca

Bangkok, a stimulating drama about international jetsetters dashing from continent to continent looking for The ONE.

Long after Steve and Faith are convinced there is no point, they persist in their once-yearly meeting by the pool of an over-priced Bangkok hotel.  Faith, an embittered and drink-sodden shadow of her former vivacious self, compels Steve to remind her of the way they were. 

“ … the plot flip-flops between a frustrated, angry present, and thrilling, blissful past.  The past becomes like a drug for Faith as she begs Steve to provide memories she can sink into, forgetting her present state.  It is fascinating to watch this reverse downward spiral as Faith becomes more and more obsessed with losing herself in the past, all the while being pulled back to the present along with the audience.”
